Force Majeure Parabellum Coulée 2019 (93 VM)
“Showing a good degree of decadence, the beautifully textured ‘Coulee’ by Parabellum revels in its concentrated huckleberry, coffee ground and black tea flavors that mingle with the soft sense of mouthfeel and smoky/salty undercurrents.” -OB 11/21
Made utilizing meticulously farmed grapes from the estate vineyards on Red Mountain and in the Walla Walla Valley, these wines receive the same care and attention in both winemaking and viticulture as the upper-tier Force Majeure wines. The goal with Parabellum is to produce beautiful and approachable wines that are reflective of their varieties and terroir, without constraints on blending. Parabellum provides an opportunity to savor an authentic wine of distinction at a great value.
