Alder Ridge Vineyard
2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Alder Ridge Vineyard
A nose of ripe red fruits, layered with moderate oak. On the palate, the red fruit predominates with hints blueberry, supported by soft oak tannins and notes of barrel spice.
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 2017 vintage would be a great match for roast beef.
