Gravel Bar Red Wine Blend, Alluvial, Columbia Valley, 2014
For more than twenty centuries, torrential floodwaters from melting ice-age glaciers sculpted eastern Washington's Columbia Valley, leaving in their wake deep deposits of sandy, rocky, alluvial soils. Today, framing the Columbia River, broad plains of ancient sediment constitute one of the world's finest wine grape growing regions. Our Gravel Bar Columbia Valley AVA Alluvial Red Wine Blend is handcrafted in small lots and aged sur lie in American Oak. Full-bodied, with vibrant flavors of black cherry, clove and spice. Complex and concentrated. Alc. 14.5% by vol. Cellared & bottled by Gravel Bar Winery, Mattawa, WA.
