Aromatics of sweet herbs and forest floor lead to flavors of blueberry, cherry, and milk chocolate. This is a full-bodied and stain your glass dark red wine, that finishes with dusty, earthy notes paired with mixed berry pie. This is a savory Cabernet so will pair well with fatty steaks, venison, braised shanks, and most mild cheeses. “This is a favorite of mine to sip on cold nights in the hot tub.” – John Freeman, WinemakerAVA BACKGROUND:
Known for its many and varied microclimates (cool, warm, windy, hilly, at), Columbia Valley is the umbrella AVA under which many of the state’s sub-AVAs fall. While it contains 99% of wine grapes grown in Washington State, 6,851 of its acres are unique to the Columbia Valley and don’t overlap another sub-AVA in the state.
