Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.6%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Cabernet from this iconic 35-year-old vineyard always delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. This is a dense wine with great aging potential. Fruit is the star of the show for our Cold Creek Cabernet!

Varietal Blend: 87% Cold Creek Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 3% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

"The Cabernet from Cold Creek is not only old vine, but in terms of tightness and definition, it suggests that it may be one of the most ageworthy wines of the vintage from Washington State. This new vintage blends 10% Merlot and 3% Syrah, and the wine is detailed with iron filings, pepper, bark, and dried earth notes. The fruit is tight, tart and racy-a suggestion of wild berry and spicy plum."
93 Points

"The purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard contains 10% Merlot and 3% Syrah and was aged for 21 months in 57% new French and American oak. It displays a bouquet of balsam wood, pepper, rosemary, violets, black currant, and blackberry. More structured than the Canoe Ridge cuvee, it has 3-4 years of aging potential. A bit of patience will be required. "
91 Points

"Bright full ruby. Cassis, black raspberry, violet and licorice on the very ripe nose; more floral than the Canoe Ridge Estate bottling but showed a lightly porty quality with extended aeration. Moderately sweet and suave on the palate, with noteworthy purity to the dark berry and menthol flavors. Not as open-knit today as the Canoe Ridge, and showing less in the way of obvious sweetness, but there's impressive texture and richness here. The tannins build on the back, reaching the incisors. 91(+?) points."
91 Points

"Features firm tannins up front, but the suppleness underneath carries polished blueberry and currant fruit past hints of sage and spice notes. Finishes with grace. Drink now through 2015. 9,000 cases made."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
