    Winemaker Notes

    A predominantly Merlot blend with added Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, Château Pey la Tour Reserve 2007 is a deep purple in color with tones of dark garnet. A bouquet reveals hints of chocolate, tobacco and spicy wood. The palate is generous and smooth, with a medium body and ripe tannins. The finish is long with an attractive, lingering aromatic intensity.

    Blend: 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc

    Chateau Pey La Tour
    Chateau Pey la Tour benefits from one of the finest terroirs in the Bordeaux appellation. The wines produced at Chateau Pey la Tour owe their character to the soil type specific to the region and remarkable diversity of terroirs. The combination of soil-type, grape varieties, rootstock, age of the vines and separate vinifications and aging as led to wines of great character and complexity. The estate has achieved a reputation beyond its appellation as the model of a great, yet affordable, Bordeaux wine.

    Horse Heaven Hills

    "Surely this is Horse Heaven!”

    Its wide prairies and rolling expanses led an early pioneer to proclaim that the region looked like “horse heaven,” and as a result, the area was appropriately named. Horse Heaven Hills is in south central Washington state, geographically bound on its northern border by the Yakima River and in the south, by the larger Columbia River.

    Its proximity to the Columbia River contributes to a variety of climactic factors that dramatically affect its grapes. In particular, an increase in wind from changes in pressure along the river, which flows from the cool and wet Pacific Ocean, inland to Washington’s hot and arid plains, creates 30% more wind than there would be otherwise. These winds moderate temperatures, which protect against mold and rot, reduce the risk of early and late season frosts, diminish canopy size and toughen grape skins.

    The vineyards bordering the river are on steep, south-facing, well-exposed slopes, with well-drained, sandy-loam soils. But the soils of the appellation are diverse throughout, ranging from wind-blown sand and loess, Missoula Flood sediment, and rocky basalt. Horse Heaven Hills has an arid continental climate with elevations ranging from 200 to 1,800 feet.

    The first vines of the appellation were planted in 1972 in an optimal spot now referred to as the Champoux Vineyard. Today it remains the source of some of Washington’s most desirable and expensive Cabernet Sauvignons. In fact, the appellation as a whole boasts many of Washington’s top scoring wines. Its primary grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Riesling.

    Other Red Blends

    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 create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. 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.
