Winemaker's Notes:

Walla Walla Vintners is known for our complex and compelling Cabernet Sauvignon. The core of this age-worthy wine contains 80% Cabernet Sauvignon from Cold Creek, Goose Ridge, Dwelley Jones, and Sagemoor Vineyards. We added 10% Merlot from Killian and Sagemoor Vineyards, 7% Cabernet Franc from Cold Creek Vineyard to extend the mouth-feel and a 3% dollop of Malbec to enrich the spicy chocolate finish. It has a chokecherry nose with a mid-palate of caramel and a hint of light brown sugar and a stunning ending of Herbs de Provence with lavender and dark chocolate.

About Walla Walla Vintners:

Walla Walla Vintners -- bonded in 1995 -- is a limited-production winery dedicated to making handcrafted, premium red wines --Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot -- cellared and aged in American and French oaks. The winemakers are Myles Anderson, and Gordon Venneri. This duet produced homecrafted wines for many years before making commercial wines. The homecrafted venture permitted them to practice winemaking, take mistakes to the dump, and forge a successful partnership. Neither partner has given up his day job - this is still a hobby business. Gordon is a CPA and field agent for Knight of Columbus Insurance and Myles is a teaching psychologist at the local community college. The new winery, designed and built by Alan Jones, is located off Mill Creek Road on 17 acres near the Blue Mountains. The winery is open for tasting and sales featuring its newest release during two weekends a year, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. To reach the winery from US 12, take the Rooks Park exit. The winery is located 3.2 miles east from Isaac Avenue on Mill Creek Road in Walla Walla.
