Winemaker Notes

Aromas greeting the nose are of black currant, prune, damp leather, sage, forest floor, blackberry, dust, bramble, graphite. The entrance is plush and rich. Lengthy structured tannins increase on the mid-palate as dark fruit flavors emerge. Currant, prune, blackberry and plum are joined by accents of forest floor, graphite, almond, toffee, tobacco, leather, espresso, eucalyptus and bramble. Some acidity at the end contributes to a generous finish.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Carmenere

Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Forward aromas of baking spice, vanilla, licorice, coconut and black cherry lead the nose, with fruit and barrel playing equal parts. Like many wines from this vintage, it has a palate that's pulled back, with more reserved fruit flavors, along with a touch of barrel influence. Plenty of structure surrounds it all.

North by Northwest Winery Image
North by Northwest, or NxNW, represents wines made from inland grape growing appellations of the Columbia River Basin of Oregon and Washington. The NxNW winemakers have developed strong, creative relationships with growers and fellow winemakers in the Columbia River Appellation and throughout the northwest viticultural region - leading to this innovative project. NxNW is as unique lens for capturing the essence of terroir, the character of the people, and the quality of the wines from this great new emerging winegrowing region.

Washington produces so many exciting wines, and that definitely includes Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. With over 10,000 acres under vine, Cabernet Sauvignon is now the most widely-grown varietal in the state. Terrific examples hail from sub-appellations like Red Mountain, Wahluke Slope, Horse Heaven Hills and Walla Walla Valley. One of the fascinations of these Columbia Valley Cabs is that they so often seem to have one foot in the New World and one in the Old. Representing the former are characteristics like the ripe, forward fruit that results from long sunny days during the growing season (up to two hours longer than in much of California). Old World similarities include an undeniable brightness from acidity, as well as notes of herbs, graphite and a dusty, sometimes gravelly minerality.

Whether you’re looking for a budget bottle for everyday enjoyment, or a stellar, world-class wine with tremendous aging potential, Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon wines can deliver the goods! Among the many fine options are bottles from Columbia Crest, Chateau Ste. Michelle, L’ecole #41, Quilceda Creek and Leonetti.
