From its tantalizing ruby and garnet color to its soaring aromas of raspberry, ripe strawberry, Rainier cherry, wildflowers and sage-filled desert air, this is an energetic and elegantly luxurious expression of Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The vibrant red berry flavors are echoed on the plush, seductive palate, where they mingle with juicy, mouth-filling layers of black plum, cherry pie and spice that linger throughout a long, rich finish.
East of Washington’s majestic Cascade Mountains, the Columbia Valley has earned renown as the source for some of North America’s most dynamic and exciting Cabernet Sauvignons. With idyllic sundrenched summer days, cold nights and very little rainfall, it is a land of extremes, where Cabernet Sauvignon clusters ripen perfectly on the vines, yielding energetic wines, with soaring aromas and tantalizing flavors of plum, black cherry and wild strawberry.
In the Columbia Valley, the 2019 growing season was shaped by a cool spring and a temperate summer with very few days above 100º F. This allowed the grapes to slowly ripen, developing pure, focused flavors, while still possessing bright, refreshing acidity. As a result, the 2019 vintage has produced elegant and energetic wines that embody the character of the Columbia Valley with silky tannins and lush, alluring fruit.
Pairs well with beef, lamb, deer, venison, and poultry dishes.
