2010 Miscela : Columbia Valley
True to the spirit of this wine… Miscela is Italian for “blend”…we see how grapes from many different vineyards can come together to make a satisfying Bordeaux style blend. A counterpoint to our Abbinare blend we’ve created a Cabernet heavy blend with the majority component sourced from Champoux Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills. We followed this with a generous helping of Merlot from Conner Lee Vineyard, Cab Franc from Dineen Vineyard, and a touch of Stone Tree. We call it Washington State in a glass…
Bottled on 7/21/12. 150 cases were produced. Alcohol: 14.72%, pH 3.52, TA 6.41g/L.
