Winemaker Notes

From its amazing density of color and perfumed floral and spice aromatics to its bold structure, this is an exciting wine, and a compelling expression of Phinny Hill Vineyard. Though dominated by rich cabernet notes, the cool 2010 season has underscored the brightness and energy of the Columbia Rediviva. Enticing aromas of violet, cinnamon and nutmeg expand to reveal layers of black currant and lush Bing cherry, with the Syrah adding a fresh berry cobbler note. On the palate, firm, well-balanced tannins and excellent acidity provide an almost architectural backbone, and promise a long life. The finish is lengthy and clean, with persistent fruit and flower elements.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah

Wine Enthusiast
The 85% of Cabernet Sauvignon is upfront, with Syrah providing an accent. It's tightly wound, with notes of dusty cherry, sautéed herbs and spices, and tart cranberries supported by chewy, firm tannins that need time in the cellar to come into their own. Best after 2017.

Fresh and lively, with a sleek feel to the red berry, pomegranate and floral aromas and flavors, dancing deftly through fine tannins on the refined finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Columbia Rediviva Phinny Hill Vineyard Estate is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Syrah that saw the Cabernet picked on October 12 and the Syrah a week later. Aged for 20 months in 80% French and 20% American oak, 40% being new, it offers a great, floral-laced nose of black raspberry, underbrush and violets. Firm and tight on the palate, with juicy, if not racy acidity, it possesses medium-bodied richness and fleshes out nicely on the palate with solid depth and length. Really showing the cooler nature of the vintage, with a borderline lean profile, it will benefit from short-term cellaring and have a solid 8-10-year drink window. Drink now-2023.

Responsible for some of Washington’s most highly acclaimed wines, the Walla Walla Valley has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years and is home to both historic wineries and younger, up-and-coming producers.

The Walla Walla Valley, a Native American name meaning “many waters,” is located in southeastern Washington; part of the appellation actually extends into Oregon. Soils here are well-drained, sandy loess over Missoula Flood deposits and fractured basalt.

It is a region perfectly suited to Rhône-inspired Syrahs, distinguished by savory notes of red berry, black olive, smoke and fresh earth. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create a range of styles from smooth and supple to robust and well-structured. White varieties are rare but some producers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon, resulting in a rich and round style, and plantings of Viognier, while minimal, are often quite successful.

Of note within Walla Walla, is one new and very peculiar appellation, called the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. This is the only AVA in the U.S. whose boundaries are totally defined by the soil type. Soils here look a bit like those in the acclaimed Rhône region of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but are large, ancient, basalt cobblestones. These stones work in the same way as they do in Chateauneuf, absorbing and then radiating the sun's heat up to enhance the ripening of grape clusters. The Rocks District is within the part of Walla Walla that spills over into Oregon and naturally excels in the production of Rhône varieties like Syrah, as well as the Bordeaux varieties.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
