2013 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Our grapes are sourced from two vineyards in and around the Red Mountain AVA, an area famous for producing robust Cabs. Close your eyes and let the enticing aromas of black currant, violets, and cedar transport you to a café on the banks of the Garonne River. With predominate flavors of black cherry and bell pepper, this Cabernet is firmly rooted in Bordeaux. However, we’ve added a slight Rhone twist by blending in a small amount of Syrah, which accentuates the cigar box and black pepper notes. The smooth and round mouth feel are contrasted with racy acidity, and a slightly tannic finish that grabs your attention and exclaims, “This wine will not go quietly into the night!”
