Pomum Red Bordeaux Blend Yakima Valley Shya Red 2006
In 2006 we selected our best lots to produce our signature red blend from the classic varietals traditionally grown in the Bordeaux region in France. The composition is similar to past vintages with 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, and 1% Petite Verdot. Vineyard sourcing include notable names such as DuBrul, Elerding, Dineen and Upland. The Yakima Valley character shines through with bright and racy cherry, raspberry and cola aromas wrapped in an intensively perfumed nose of exotic spices and aromatic herbs. The full body mouth feel shows great acidity, tremendous structure and an endless source of fruit; all traits that will ensure enjoyment for years to come. Aerate aggressively if consumed young. Otherwise best from 2011 on. 310 cases produced.
Pomum Cellars nurtures from soil to stemware a true expression of American made wine grown in the unique and outstanding viticultural areas surrounding the majestic Columbia River in Washington State. At Pomum Cellars, we believe that wine is grown in the vineyards and consequently, our goal is to understand, as best we can, the complex relationship between vine and environment such that the wine's self-expression is maximized.
