Sleight of Hand The Conjurer Red


Trey Busch moved to Walla Walla in 2000, leaving behind a job in sales at Nordstrom in Seattle.  He quickly landed work at Dunham Cellars, an acclaimed winery where he was able to learn his craft while on the job. Hard work paid off quickly, as he was offered the position of head winemaker for nearby Basel Cellars in 2002. By 2007, he went out on his own, launching Sleight of Hand Cellars with partners Jerry and Sandy Solomon. He came up with the name from the song Sleight of Hand, which appeared on the Pearl Jam album Binaural.

Since its inception, Sleight of Hand has enjoyed a very fine reputation, but it is in the last handful of years that it has truly taken flight as one of Washington’s super elite producers.  The style at Sleight of Hand has evolved and refined dramatically since the arrival of production winemaker Keith Johnson of Devium fame.  The wines show more finesse, elegance, and purity, without sacrificing fruit or texture. Keith has taken the wines to a new level, among the crème de la crème of the west coast.  
The Conjurer is a “Graves” style blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Cabernet Franc, and 21% Merlot.  It is a medium-to-full bodied wine with rich blackcurrant cassis, violet, tobacco, and Chinese five spice on the nose, rich, mouth-filling flavours on the palate, and velvety tannins.  As has been the case since the inaugural 2011 vintage, the mug of one Neil Patrick Harris has been on the circus poster-style label.  As with all of Sleight of Hand’s red wines, it has great depth and concentration, while holding on to a signature elegance.
