Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant garnet in color. Polished and elegant with exotic cassis, sage, blackberry and currant flavors with bramble fruit and a hint of oregano. Traces of vanilla and leather qualities add to the interest of the long, persistent finish. Pairs beautifully with a rich cassoulet. 86.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13.5% Merlot.

About Columbia Winery:

Columbia Winery was the first premium winery in Washington and the first in the state to produce vineyard-designate wines. Columbia Winery was founded in 1962 by ten friends, six of whom were University of Washington professors. Originally known as Associated Vintners, the group was united in the belief that vines could survive the harsh Washington winters and that fine wine could be made in Washington state.

Having worked alongside founding winemaker and Master of Wine, David Lake, Kerry Norton now oversees the Columbia Winery winemaking, handcrafting Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah sourced from the Columbia and Yakima Valleys.
