WE 90

The Columbia Valley is a diverse growing region that provides a wide range of fruit expression by variety allowing the winemaker to craft rich, multi-layered wines by blending grapes from unique vineyards throughout the region. Vineyard sources that give this wine its richness and complexity include our estate vineyard, Stillwater Creek, and such well-known Columbia Valley vineyards as Seven Hills and Red Mountain, among others. The Cabernet Sauvignon is aged 20-months in predominantly French oak barrels; both new, and one-year-old.

GRAPE VARIETY: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc

FOOD PAIRINGS: Red meats, especially a juicy barbequed steak, grilled and smoked foods

TASTING NOTES: Generous, supple and focused, this aromatic Cabernet Sauvignon offers wild blackberries, ripe cherries and vanilla spice in the glass and on the palate, gaining intensity across a textured finish.


"Cocoa powder, vanilla, toast and high-toned blue and black-fruit flavors are followed by a flavorful fruit-forward palate. It doesn't always seem entirely varietal but still brings plenty of appeal." -Rated 90, Wine Enthusiast
