    Winemaker Notes

    A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 9% Syrah, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec.

    Our winemaking goal with the Columbia Valley Cabernet is to highlight concentrated Washington red fruit in an accessible style. This is our "everyday" Cab with plenty of complexity and structure. It's also very versatile with food--try it with beef, pork or pasta.

    The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked...

    View More

    The [Napa Valley] and [Cabernet Sauvignon] are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
