Winemaking Notes

After harvesting in October 2014, the grapes for this wine were destemmed at the winery and transferred to tanks. Fermentation occurred at 85°F in small-lot, stainless steel tanks, both open and closed top. During fermentation, pump-overs and punch downs were used for intense extraction of color and flavor. Malolactic fermentation was completed to create a round mouthfeel. All lots were barrel aged for 18 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

2014 Legacy

A classic Bordeaux-style blend, our Columbia Winery Legacy Red Blend has power and presence from aroma to finish – a tribute to our own legacy in Washington winemaking. Legacy opens with a bouquet of cassis and plum, layered with toasted oak and brown spice. This blend is led by Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot which creates a wine with solid structure, firm tannins, and ample elegance. Malbec and Cabernet Franc lend a deep purple hue along with aromas of blueberry and dried herbs. A touch of Petit Verdot complements this memorable Red Blend, reinforcing its structure and intensity. Legacy Red Blend is a true classic, and as such will pair well with dishes like beef bourguignon and beef Wellington.
