Columbia Valley Red Blend
After a string of highly-regarded Washington vintages, Winemaker Sean Hails created Red Blend using fruit from across several recent years, selecting his favorite lots to showcase the art of blending. Our Red Blend is crafted with fruit sourced across the Columbia Valley, including Yakima Valley, Horse Heaven Hills, Wahluke Slope and a small portion of Red Mountain. All together, the fruit from these prized AVAs results a red blend that speaks Washington.
Columbia Winery Red Blend is primarily a blend of Merlot and Syrah. Sourced from Washington’s finest growing regions, the supple Red Blend has a solid, fruit-forward foundation of fresh blackberry, cassis and blueberry flavors, with hints of ripe raspberry and red cherry. Soft, approachable tannins are enhanced on the medium-bodied palate with Syrah’s notes of pepper and clove, with a mouth-filling texture. Notes of vanilla, toasted oak and brown spice linger on the Red Blend’s long finish.
