Alder Ridge Vineyard
2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Alder Ridge Vineyard
The 2016 Cabernet opens with a nose of sandalwood and fig. On the palate, the rich fruit predominates, supported by soft oak tannins and notes of leather and pipe tobacco.
Located in Washington’s acclaimed Horse Heaven Hills AVA, Alder Ridge Vineyard was originally planted in 1997 and remains one of the most reputable vineyards in the Columbia Valley. The site is known for exceptionally long hang times, due to the moderating effect of the river on summer heat spikes and winter freezes.
Food Pairing Notes
Cabernet is a perfect pairing for rich red meat dishes. The rich 2016 vintage would be a great match for roast beef.
