Winemaker Notes

Our 2011 Va Piano Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon benefitted from the cool year, receiving more Estate fruit than usual, along with some of our most exclusive sites including 25 year old plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is a very dark and rich wine with great structure and potential for long term aging. Strong notes of cocoa, lavender and blackberries fill the glass. Vibrant cherry, toffee and cedar notes fill the palate, finishing with a smooth combination of licorice and hints of toasted almond. The acidity and structure definitely lends to holding onto the wine for awhile, with it showing best starting in 2015-with a decant of 4-6 hours; and should easily last to 2026.

Wine Enthusiast
Sourced from a half dozen vineyards, it includes small amounts of Merlot and Cab Franc. Balanced and complete, it conveys blackberry, coffee and a smooth, vivid streak of caramel, with silky, delicious tannins.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Tasted out of bottle, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley is a solid, medium-bodied and firm effort that gives up classic black and blue fruits, spice, graphite and ample minerality on both the nose and palate. Made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 4% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot that spent 22 months in 40% new French oak, it will benefit from short-term cellaring and drink nicely through 2026.

"Chi va piano, va sano e va lontano." He who goes slowly, goes safely and goes far. This old Italian saying sums up Va Piano Vineyards approach to winemaking, and to life.

The inspiration for a Tuscan-themed winery and tasting room came about after owner/winemaker Justin Wylie spent his senior year at Gonzaga University studying in Florence, Italy. He fell in love with the art, rustic architecture, culture, history, and warm hospitality he encountered there. Upon his return to the Walla Walla Valley (Justin is a fourth-generation native), his passion for wine making (and wine!) soon matched his passion for Tuscany and the seeds for Va Piano Vineyards were planted.

The Va Piano Vineyards winery and tasting room share a custom built 7,500 square foot facility built in Tuscan style: timber beamed ceilings, wrought iron railings, clay tile roof, traditional earthen stucco, eight-foot-tall distressed alder doors, and tumbled granite door and window accents create a timeless impression of quality.

Va Piano Vineyards is inspired by Tuscany, but the wine is quintessential Walla Walla. Take your time, enjoy yourself, and participate fully in the beautiful journey
