Winemaker's Notes:

Ripe black fruit and warm vanilla aromas echo across the palate. With loads of dense currant and deep black cherry harmoniously wrapped around a rich, supple core, the finish is long and elegant.

Vintage: The Columbia Valley enjoyed another excellent harvest in 2001 on the heels of three strong vintages preceding it. Warm summer temperatures were accompanied by dry conditions that persisted through harvest. Ideal ripening conditions produced grapes with loads of rich fruit character, while the Columbia Valley's cool evening temperatures protected the grapes natural acidity and gave the wine great balance and structure.
