User Reviews for Three Rivers Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Horse Heaven Hills Champoux Vineyard

Winemaker's Notes:

Vintage Hot, dry weather from bud-break to mid-August led to the earliest harvest start in Washington State. 2004 was a hot growing season followed by a cool September and warmer October, ideal for ripening. The extended length of the 2004 growing season allowed the grapes to fully mature and develop intense rich flavors. Vineyards The 2004 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from Katherine-Leone Vineyard, Sagemoor Farms Vineyards, Ahler Vineyard, Martinez Vineyard, Alder Creek Vineyard, Conner-Lee Vineyard and Snipes Canyon Vineyard. All of these vineyards are located in the Columbia Valley region of Washington. Harvest dates varied from September 24th through October 18th. All of the fruit is hand-harvested into small bins in the early morning hours and processed immediately upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation & Aging The fruit was de-stemmed and crushed into small fermentors where it was either punched down by hand three times a day or pumped over twice daily. Primary fermentation lasted, on average, seven days. At this time the skins were gently pressed off and fermentation was completed in barrel. Malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel adding a viscous mouthfeel and complexity to the wine. While aging in oak barrels the wines were racked every three months to naturally clarify the wine. Appellation: Columbia Valley Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon 98%, Malbec 2% Harvest Brix: 24.5 Final pH: 3.67 Total Acid: 0.57g/100ml Alcohol: 14.4% by volume
