To make a well-balanced red wine, we blended Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah from three different appellations in Columbia Valley. The Wahluke Slope and Yakima Valley appellations experience desert-like conditions in the spring and summer months where hot days are followed by cool nights. As a result, the grapes are smaller with thicker skins which adds complexity and structure to the wine. The Horse Heaven Hills appellation shares similar soil types with the Wahluke Slope and Yakima Valley and experiences frequent winds throughout the growing season which stress the vines. Drip irrigation is used to help the fruit maintain the proper balance of sugar and acidity which produces intense flavor. The freshness and layers of fruit expressed in the wine are driven by this intensity of flavor.
