 Tasted by Gulelin on 5/26/2008 & rated 90 points: Purple in color. Beautiful, expressive nose of pure fruit. Light to medium bodied. Straight forward and simple on the palate, but very tasty. (1540 views)
 Tasted by djpo on 5/10/2008 & rated 88 points: Multi-faceted nose - not quite as complex in the mouth. Soft but present tannins. Short finish. (1360 views)
 Tasted by Gulelin on 3/6/2008 & rated 90 points: The nose on this is amazing. Purple in colour and medium bodied. Good mouth feel. The finish had a tinge of bitterness, but I think this is due to the trouble I had opening the bottle....I had to push the cork in, and then I held the cork in while puring with a utenzil that my wife later informed me was an onion holder...not the best decission. I had this earlier last year and don't recall any aftertaste similiar. (1493 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 5/20/2007 & rated 85 points: Nice fruit; however fairly one dimensional (1632 views)
 Tasted by MagnumGourmet on 12/15/2006: Good and tasty. Bright tannins without being overly drying. Nose of tobacco, blackberries and bramble. Would imagine that this will smoothe out with some time in the cellar. Would purchase again. (1844 views)
 Tasted by phantphant on 9/3/2006 & rated 86 points: Fine wine...very drinkable...not much of a lasting finish (1471 views)

Cadence

Producer website

2004 Cadence Coda

Winery notes: Captivating aromas of raspberry preserves, tobacco and smoke. Very soft and supple on the palate, with a delightful, mouthwatering freshness to the fruit. Lots of allspice and tobacco complexity, too, for the discerning Cadence drinkers who demand more than a fruit bomb. The wine finishes with velvety tannins that do not get in the way of the lingering spice and berry flavors. 78% Cabernet Franc, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon

Red Bordeaux Blend

Read about the grapes used to produce Bordeaux The variety Red Bordeaux Blend in CellarTracker implies any blend using any or all of the five traditional Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. As such, this is used worldwide, whether for wines from Bordeaux, Meritages from California and Canada, some Super-Tuscan wines etc.

Columbia Valley

Columbia Cascade Winery Association

The Columbia Valley AVA lies mostly in Washington state, with a small section in Oregon. The Cascade Range forms its western boundary with the Palouse regions bordering the area to the east. To the north, the Okanogan National Forest forms a border with the AVA and Canada. It encompasses the valleys formed by the Columbia River and its tributaries, including the Walla Walla River, the Snake River, and the Yakima River. The Columbia valley stretches between the 46th parallel and 47th parallel which puts it in line with the well known French wine growing regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy. The northern latitude gives the areas two more hours of additional daylight during the summer growing season than wine regions of California receive. The volcanic and sandy loam soil of the valley offers good drainage and is poor in nutrients, ideal in forcing the vine to concentrate its resources into the grape clusters.
