2013 Miscela : Columbia Valley
True to the spirit of this wine... Miscela is Italian for "blend"...we see how grapes from different vineyards create a satisfying Bordeaux style wine. This Cabernet-heavy blend was sourced from five different vineyards in Eastern Washington with the majority of components sourced from Dineen Vineyard on the east end of the Yakima Valley. We followed this with a generous helping of Cab from Stone Tree Vineyard near Mattawa, and Merlot from Red Mountain, and the Wahluke Slope;. Contributions from these diverse vineyards compel us to call this wine "Washington State in a glass".
