2015 Passing Time Columbia Valley Red Blend

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.
