Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is dark violet in color. Aromas of ripe plum, cherry jam, and coconut. The flavors are that of black cherry, chocolate, oak, and olive. The entry is rich, there are light tannins, and a lingering finish.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot

My Notes:

About NxNW:

NxNW: North by Northwest, represents wines made from inland grape growing appellations of the Columbia River Basin of Oregon and Washington. The NxNW winemakers have developed strong, creative relationships with growers and fellow winemakers in the Columbia River Appellation and throughout the northwest viticultural region - leading to this innovative project. NxNW is as unique lens for capturing the essence of terroir, the character of the people, and the quality of the wines from this great new emerging winegrowing region.
