 Tasted by pgamble on 11/7/2007 & rated 88 points: Mostly cab franc, tasty and juicy. A nice wine, but nothing outstanding. (2037 views)
 Tasted by dedas1 on 9/23/2007 & rated 88 points: Light to medium color. Average nose. Blend of 78% cab franc and 22% cab sauvig. The cab sauvig stands out pretty strong, and over bares the franc. Smooth short finish with very soft tannins. A nice wine for an evening meal. Would likely not hold up against stronger cabs, merlots. Maybe on the pace of a noir. A nice wine never-the-less. The pure cab franc is something to behold though and will be worth tasting on release. (1919 views)

 Tasted by mreinitz on 5/19/2007: Medium bodied. It's probably quite good, but on a night when we were opening truly spectacular wines it couldn't hold its own. (2143 views)
 Tasted by Red Mountain Man on 5/13/2007 & rated 90 points: Very tasty Cab Franc/Cab mix. Light and juicy, with raspberry & spice dominant flavors, this is a great weekday drink to pull out with the burgers. Can't wait for the Bel Canto later this year. (1735 views)
 Tasted by Eric on 1/28/2007: A Cadence tasting (Seattle, WA): Bottled today. Smoky nose, tobacco, lovely. (2137 views)

2005 Cadence Coda

Winery notes: The wine is a saturated ruby red. The nose bursts out of the glass with dusty spice, savory red and black fruit, and a caress of oak toast. The palate conveys the same flavors, but what is most striking about Coda at this early stage is the vibrancy of flavors and the length of the finish. This is juicy! The tannins are exceptionally fine and go on throughout the rising finish. 80% Cabernet Franc, 20% 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.
