2009 Abbinare : Columbia Valley

Nota Bene


Regular price $0.00

The linking of vineyards and varietals from around the state is captured in our blend called Abbinare…Italian for “link together”. This is a Merlot heavy Bordeaux style blend that is capturing a growing number of wine lovers with its old world character. Right bank charm dominated by Arianses Vineyard Merlot grown with care by vineyard owner Bruce Zunser. This is not to make light of the Cabernet contribution by Tedd Wildman at Stone Tree Vineyard or two wines from Conner Lee Vineyard. All sources have come together to show a fine wine from Washington State. Bottled on 7/16/11; 213cases were produced; pH 3.64, TA 6.45 g/L.

61% Merlot (49% Arianses Vineyard,
12% Conner Lee Vineyard)

36% Cabernet Sauvignon (24% Stone Tree Vineyard,
12% Conner Lee Vineyard)

3% Malbec (Verhey Vineyard)

Barrels: This wine was aged for 22 months in seasoned French oak by Tonnellerie Vernou and Saury, with French oak adjunct additions by Canton Cooperage.
