From website: 2005 Yakima Valley Red Wine
A blend of 37.9% Merlot, 20.7% Cabernet Franc, and 41.4% Cabernet Sauvignon.
//DuBrul Vineyard//, //Red Willow Vineyard//, and //Slide Mountain Vineyard// from the cooler, western end of the Yakima Valley have provided the Merlot and Cabernet Franc fruit in this wine. The warmer //Elerding Vineyard// farther east gave us the tasty and ripe Cabernet Sauvignon. The Yakima Valley Red Wine is designed to showcase that a world-class Merlot and Cabernet Franc based Bordeaux blend can be obtained from this remarkable growing area.
This is our signature wine. It speaks to our commitment to produce the best wines from the best grape varieties in each appellation, in this case - the bright berry flavor of the Merlot and fragrant notes of the Cabernet Franc are wonderfully framed with the structure and acidity of the Cabernet Sauvignon. All in all, this is a marvelously complex Bordeaux-styled red blend.
