2012 Long Shadows Chester Kidder Red Wine Columbia Valley image

Allen Shoup named this wine in honor of his grandfather, Charles Chester, and his grandmother, Maggie Kidder. He selected Long Shadows' director of winemaking and viticulture, Gilles Nicault, to craft this New World blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and other classic Bordeaux varieties.

The 2012 vintage was a classic growing season, producing wines with exceptional color, richness and complexity.  The season started warm; April conditions were near perfect, then temperatures cooled considerably in May and June before warming for the summer and remaining remarkably consistent throughout harvest.  Small berries loaded with intense flavor matured beautifully, yielding rich flavors and ripe, integrated tannins.

Deep and dark in color, brimming with black cherry and ripe plum aromas and flavors.  Hints of ground coffee, mocha and oak spice echo across the palate, adding complexity.  Bold on the entry, gaining brightness across the mid-palate with layers of vibrant red fruit leading to a long and supple finish.
