Winemaker Comments
The 2005 Columbia Valley Red Wine is an excellent Bordeaux blend (84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot). This wine reflects the richness and complexity of the vintage and ranks as one of our favorite Red Wine offerings to date. Aged in predominantly new French oak for 22 months, this medium-bodied wine displays black cherry fruit, anise, marzipan, dried herbs and minerals. Approachable now, it will be best enjoyed over the next 15 years.
