Gravel Bar 2014 Alluvial Red Wine Blend Columbia Valley
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 constitutes one of the world's finest wine grape growing regions.
This is a full-bodied red with vibrant flavors of dried cherries, plum, toffee, chocolate and vanilla. The structure is rich, with bold tannins extending the finish.
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRINGS: Lamb burgers, beef stew, baked penne with pork ragù.
