Winemaker's Notes:

Dark ruby and garnet core with a crimson rim. Concentrated and intense; nuances of cocoa, forest floor, truffles and red currant back up dark cherry and kirsch. A slight capsicum/pepper gives this wine its varietal thumbprint without being overbearing. Round and generous with great flavor intensity and persistent finish, this wine is seductive and polished. Decant and drink.

Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 9% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot

My Notes:

About Alder Ridge:

Located on the Columbia River, on the Southern border of Washington state, Alder Ridge has been regarded as one of the finest vineyard sites in the entire state. Natural wind and air drainage protects the vines from the harsh weather conditions, both in the summer and winter.
