    Winemaker Notes

    Literally "blank slate," tabula rasa in this case refers to each vintage, when the winemaker must start over with the current harvest (and subsequent blend), effectively wiping the slate clean. "Vin de Tabula Rasa" is a play on the French phrase vin de table, while "rasa" could almost be some obscure Mediterranean dialect for red. In 2011, Syrah once again dominates the blend with the balance comprising Mourvedre and Grenache. The result is a soft and delicious Cotes-du Rhone wannabe that's perfect with pasta, pizza, stews, and just about anything hot off the grill.

    Andrew Rich Winery Image

    Named one of Wine & Spirits magazine's top 100 wineries of 2009, Andrew Rich Wines has been crafting distinctive wines in Oregon's Willamette Valley since 1995, after six years of winemaking at Bonny Doon Vineyard. His ensemble comprises highly distinctive Oregon and Washington wines - white, pink, red, and redder, culminating in a sweet, sensuous, opulent, well-balanced Gewürztraminer from frozen grapes.

    A large and geographically diverse AVA capable of producing a wide variety of wine styles, the Columbia Valley AVA is home to 99% of Washington state’s total vineyard area. A small section of the AVA even extends into northern Oregon!

    Because of its size, it is necessarily divided into several distinctive sub-AVAs, including Walla Walla Valley and Yakima Valley—which are both further split into smaller, noteworthy appellations. A region this size will of course have varied microclimates, but on the whole it experiences extreme winters and long, hot, dry summers. Frost is a common risk during winter and spring. The towering Cascade mountain range creates a rain shadow, keeping the valley relatively rain-free throughout the entire year, necessitating irrigation from the Columbia River. The lack of humidity combined with sandy soils allows for vines to be grown on their own rootstock, as phylloxera is not a serious concern.

    Red wines make up the majority of production in the Columbia Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety here, where it produces wines with a pleasant balance of dark fruit and herbs. Wines made from Merlot are typically supple, with sweet red fruit and sometimes a hint of chocolate or mint. Syrah tends to be savory and Old-World-leaning, with a wide range of possible fruit flavors and plenty of spice. The most planted white varieties are Chardonnay and Riesling. These range in style from citrus and green apple dominant in cooler sites, to riper, fleshier wines with stone fruit flavors coming from the warmer vineyards.
