About

90

"Possessing lots of red currants, earthy herbs and dried spices, the 2013 Arianses Vineyard Red Blend (34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc and the balance Petit Verdot) is beautiful on the palate, with silky tannin, good concentration and impressive balance. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years."

Product Description:

This is vintage two from Arianses Vineyard near Desert Air along the Columbia River just south of Mattawa. Special thanks to vineyard owner Bruce Zunser for his care and vision in growing the components to offer us this Bordeaux style blend. Cab is dominant, but all varietals offer significant sensory components. The cellar “secrets” contributing to the blend are multi-yeast fermentations, bâtonage, and early integration through blending. We think you’ll enjoy the fruits of our labor. 150 cases produced. 34% Cabernet Sauvignon (Arianses Vineyard) 33% Merlot (Arianses Vineyard) 17% Cabernet Franc (Arianses Vineyard) 16% Petit Verdot (Arianses Vineyard)
