2019 History Columbia Valley Red Blend
Serious and elegant, this wine opens with aromatic notes of brambly red fruit, cassis berry, clove and star anise. The tannin has an elegant presence that is supported by flavors dark red red plums, cassis and exotic spice.
The growing season from bud break through harvest all fell within days of the 2013 vintage. Cool, wet weather arrived in early September, but by late September and October, conditions returned to sunny days and brisk nights. The resulting wines are lower in alcohol, with delicate flavors and beautiful nuances. The 2019 vintage will be one we remember thanks to the tremendous character and charisma in the wines.
