Field blends have been a part of our American winemaking tradition since the 1800s when European immigrants with their viticultural customs came to the west coast in search of a better life. In trying to determine which of the viticultural varieties from home worked best in their new surroundings, they planted several varieties together to see which did best. Until phylloxera hit near the end of the century and vineyard planting became far more regimented, field blends were widely popular and commonplace.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
There’s lots of ripe, red fruit—cherries and plums—that are underscored by a backdrop of dark chocolate and vanilla: rich and fresh flavors that typically come attached to a heftier price tag. The combination of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah showcase Washington’s very best contribution to the world of wine.
Vineyard Notes
Horse Heaven Hills: Established in 2005 as a sub-appellation of Columbia Valley. Grapes have been farmed there since 1972 and now it produces 25% of Washington's total grape production. It is the proud source of the 1st, 2nd & 3rd ”100 point" wines in the State of Washington. Yakima Valley: Established in 1983, it was Washington State's first federally recognized AVA. Silt-loam soils predominate allowing proper drainage necessary to keep vine's vigor under control.
Food Pairing Notes
Négociants Chris and Elijah have blended this wine to be aromatically rich and delicious with food, from summer barbeques to winter’s slow cooked meats.
Other Notes
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 4% Syrah
