Winemaking Notes

Our Legacy Red Blend is sourced from premier sites within the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, with a good percentage coming from Alder Ridge Vineyards. Overall, Columbia Valley had the hottest temperatures on record in 2015 with the weather warming in the beginning of the growing season, leading to an early bud break. The consistent warmth led to decreased berry size which results in wines with concentrated, ripe fruit flavors, a slightly reduced amount of acidity and supple, mouth-filling tannins.

Tasting Notes

A classic Bordeaux-style blend, our 2015 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 aromas of dark ripe boysenberry, layered with toasted oak and baking spice. The blend boasts over 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, offering structure, firm tannins and elegance. Malbec and Cabernet Franc lend a deep purple hue along with aromas of blueberry and dried herbs. We increased the amount of Petit Verdot in our 2015 to offer intense fruit character. Legacy Red Blend is a true classic, and as such will pair well with dishes like prime rib and beef Wellington.
