Are you mad for Merlot?

You would have to be crazy not to be mad for this collection! Containing 4 of our Columbia Valley Merlot-based red wines, this limited-offer collection highlights the varietal in several stunning ways.  All 4 of these wines were aged in oak for nearly 2 years before bottling.

The 2018 Merlot, is sourced from Elephant Mountain and Reid Vineyards.  All grapes were picked and taken in at optimum ripeness with a two week fermentation for full color extraction and fermented to full dryness. The wine was then barrel aged for 18 months in neutral oak providing a sensuous texture with balanced acidity and easy tannins. This merlot opens with fruit forward aromas with ripe boysenberry and spice on the nose.  A robust savory palate with supple tannins leading to a peppery, dry finish.

Our 2017 Winemaker’s Reserve Cuvée is one of our showcase wines; a true Bordeaux style blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and of course, Merlot, highlighting the exemplary grapes the Columbia Gorge has to offer. Crafted by our master wine maker, Michael Sebastiani, this classic blend opens with a bouquet of sandalwood, vanilla and soft oak. The palate is beautifully balanced with notes of cherry pie and chocolate. A delightful soft, lush, spice finish. You’ll savor every drop.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot is a 50/50 blend of these 2 delicious red wine varietals, showcasing just why these two are meant to be together. Big, bold and full of fruit, this red blend is a Cathedral Ridge Winery best seller!

The 2018 Bordheauxd Red is a three way blend of some of our favorite varietals- Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.  We call this local favorite Bordheauxd, pronounced board-head and playing on the word Bordeaux, to pay homage to the wind surfing and kite boarding community. This stunning 2018 vintage opens with rich aromas of blackberry, cherry and white pepper. A luscious, full bodied, berry palate follows with notes of vanilla, ripe blackberry and cedar. The finish is dry and peppery.
