Product Description

2009 was a near perfect growing season in the Columbia Valley and our 09 red reflects that in spades. The blend is similar to the 2007 with 51% cabernet sauvignon and 49% syrah sourced from sustainably famred vineyards in the wahluke Slope AVA. While the 07 was dominated by the cab sauv portion, the generous 09 season has made the syrah the headliner this vintage. The wine is black in color with aromas dominated by dark fruit like blackberries and currants along with chocolate and coffee all of which carries through a broad and textured palate. The tannins are present, but forgiving bringing a long finish.
