Food Pairings for Columbia Crest Red Bordeaux Blend Columbia Valley Walter Clore Private Reserve
Hand-picked grapes were crushed with 20% to 30% whole berries remaining. Cold soaking on the skins for two days extracted soft tannins and intense color. After the 6 to 10 day fermentation on the skins, lots were pressed, blended and placed into new French oak barrels to finish primary fermentation. Malolactic fermentation followed in oak, wines were racked off solids before the end of the year.
This classic Bordeaux-style wine opens with intense aromatics of vanilla, caramel, dark fruits and a hint of graphite. Wonderful blackberry and dark chocolate flavors on the palate grow into a soft but powerful and complex finish lingering with notes of exotic spices. This wine is sheer elegance.
Notes: The traditional Bordeaux winemaking protocol included barrel aging for 26 months with barrel-to-barrel racking at three month intervals. Barrels were topped weekly during the first six weeks, and egg white fining occurred after 18 months.
