Columbia Valley Red 'Washington', Joel Gott

To make a well-balanced red wine, we blended Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and a small amount of Malbec from four different appellations in Columbia Valley. Fruit from vineyards in the Red Mountain, Wahluke Slope and Yakima Valley appellations experience desert-like conditions in the winter and spring, where hot days are followed by cool nights. As a result, grapes are smaller with thicker skins, adding complexity to the wine. The Horse Heaven Hills vineyard, planted in the same type of soil, experiences frequent winds throughout the growing season, which stresses the vines. Drip irrigation is used here to produce fruit with intense flavor, giving the wine a balance of sugar and acidity
