Winemaker's Notes

The 2005 Columbia Valley Red Wine is an excellent Bordeaux blend (84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot) representative of our declassification program which began with the 1997 vintage. This wine reflects the richness and complexity of the vintage and ranks as one of our favorite Red Wine offerings to date. Aged in predominantly new French oak for 22 months, this medium bodied wine displays black cherry fruit, anise, marzipan, dried herbs and minerals.

Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Red Wine is the winery’s second label for declassified lots. It consists of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 7% Merlot. Purple-colored, it reveals an expressive bouquet of cedar, pencil lead, spice box, black currant, and blackberry. This is followed by a full-bodied, plush wine with ample ripe tannins and layers of sweet fruit. The wine has serious weight, excellent length, and will profit from several years of additional cellaring. It should be at its best from 2011 through 2020. The wine is true to the house style and is a superb value."
93 Points

"Bright ruby-red. Very ripe, rich aromas of currant, plum, smoke and mocha, lifted by spice and floral nuances. Plush and slightly candied in the mouth, with dried fruit and roasted, smoky oak notes perked up by the spice component. The sweet finish features substantial dusty tannins. "
