The Columbia Valley was Wasington’s first AVA and it is still the largest. Washington’s wine county is blessed with a terroir of abundant sunshine. Sharing the same 46-degree latitude as Burgundy and Bordeaux, the combination of Washington’s warm days, crisp cool evenings and well-draining, sandy soils yield grapes with a perfect ripeness and acidity critical for the crafting of world-class wine. This idyllic terroir allows the region to produce wines that are both fruit forward and structured.
The Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 vintage is comprised of fruit from several different vineyards, predominately The Benches, Les Collines, Alder Ridge and Heather Hill. The addition of Merlot and Cab Franc contribute to the blend’s full body and firm tannins. Black fruits like blackberry and black cherry take center stage in this smooth and balanced wine. After a rich entrance, fruit and earth blend seamlessly through a lingering finish.
