2009 Inspired

Inspired 2009

Columbia Valley, Washington

WINEMAKER NOTES

The Inspired is our version of a classic Right-Bank Bordeaux. The blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot has historically produced some of the most sought after wines in history. Ours takes that harmonious blend and displays what fruit from Eastern Washington can achieve.

Inspired is an aromatic wine, with black cherry, raspberry, and boysenberry notes. The flavors of red berries, espresso, toasty oak and a touch of mint, add to the amazing complexity of this blend. Big and full- bodied, the wine is supported by rich tannins and will age gracefully for quite some time.
