A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, and 5% Malbec.
The best part of this hot vintage is all the wines are powerful and rich. The Columbia Valley in 2017 grew big flavors in this longtime reserve quality Sagemoor Vineyard. This is another great vintage for our house style of bold, rich and easy drinking young reds.
Spring’s great weather grew heathy plants for early flowering in June. Summer temperatures were hot and dry and with abundant Columbia River water we cared for all our vineyards easily. The early Summer lead into a warm harvest in our intermountain dry desert developing the powerful vintage. We picked all our red fruit without any smoke damage on this vineyard.
