Ryan Patrick 2015 Redhead Red Wine Columbia Valley


100% Columbia Valley, from the Wahluke Slope, Clifton Bluff, & Northridge

Winemaking Notes: The grapes were gently destemmed and allowed to cold soak in the tank prior to inoculation with yeast strains selected to emphasize terroir and varietal character. Once fermentation began (in stainless steel tanks) the grapes were pumped over twice daily to aid in the extraction of color and tannin. After about seven days, the free run wine was drained away from the grapes and sent to barrel for malolactic fermentation.

Winemaker Comments: “An approachable red blend with rich and ripe flavors. We source fruit from vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley emphasizing backbone and depth, characteristics intrinsic to the style of our Redhead Red.” – Jeremy Santo, Winemaker
