Fall Line

Red Willow Vineyard Red Blend 2010

Blend: 47% cabernet franc, 39% merlot, 14% cabernet sauvignon

Vineyard: Red Willow

AVA: Yakima Valley

Aging: 18 months in French oak, 41% new

Bottled: May 5, 2013

Production: 310 cases

Notes: Translucent ruby/purple. Alluring aromatic array of spice, herb, berry, stone and hints of cedar. Becomes more floral with air, showing lavender tones, hints of new leather, and sweet spice. Silky fore-palate with soft, dusty tannins that build mid-palate and lingering, nicely balanced acidity.
