2015 Passing Time Columbia Valley Red Blend image

Aromas of blueberry, black currant, cocoa nibs, with red cherry, violets, grilled bread, and pencil shaving notes.  This wine has a linear focus and long finish, revisiting the creme de cassis, roasted cocoa, anise aspects, with a nice grip of fine tannins to give it the structure for the cellar. Delicious now, or cellar 7-10 years. 



Blend:



92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot 



55% Quintessence Cabernet, 37% Seven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Figgins Vineyard Estate Merlot



Aging:



Aged 20 months in 60% New French Oak





The base 2015 Columbia Valley Red Cuvee is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 8% Merlot.  It offers gorgeous notes of creme de cassis, blackberry, dried earth, spice, and chocolate, with beautifully integrated oak.  Rich, full-bodied, pure and elegant, its's one hell of an entry level cuvee. 





Revealing aromas of crushed cassis, tobacco leaf and creamy new oak, the 2015 Columbia Valley Red Wine is a rich, medium to full-bodied wine with a good core of fruit and a chewy but ripe chassis of structuring tannins that avoids excess.  Cellar this hearty blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot for a couple of years and follow it for the next decade.
