2008 Artist Series Red Wine

Artist Series is the ultimate sculpted wine created by blending amazing Washington fruit. For the first time, the Artist Series blend includes all five Bordeaux grape varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon (5ý%) Merlot (36%), Cabernet Franc (6%), Malbec (6%), and Petit Verdot (ý%). The result is a multi-layered, complex and harmonious wine. Nearly all of the fruit came from our estate vineyards. Canoe Ridge Estate fruit contributes elegance, structure and fine-grained tannins while Cold Creek vineyard lends concentrated, old vine intensity. Hints of cocoa, black cherry and spicy herbal notes highlight our juxtaposition of Canoe Ridge Estate and Cold Creek fruit in the blend. The finish is clean and complex all at the same time.

The 2008 Artist Series wine will be one of three labels available. Specific labels cannot be requested and are not guaranteed.
