2017 Gradient - Columbia Winery
Fruit for the 2017 Gradient Red Blend was sourced from “the best of the best” sites around Washington, according to our winemaker Sean Hails. The 2017 growing season brought us cooler-than-average weather and challenged us to be patient and wait for ripeness in our reds. It was worth the wait. We harvested fruit with deeply concentrated fruit characteristics, a slightly reduced amount of acidity and supple mouth filling tannins.
