About This Wine
Blending wine is a true art form.
This “Winemakers Reserve” Red blend from Willow Springs is the result of the artisan skills of two acclaimed winemakers: Gordon Hill and Alex Cose. Of course, it didn’t hurt that Hill and Cose had exceptional grapes with which to work during the 2016 harvest season.
Those grapes came from the Columbia Valley, which is Washington’s largest viticultural area, responsible for 99 percent of the wine grapes grown in the state. Vineyard plantings cover 56,190 acres, allowing for numerous meso- and micro-climates.
The vintners’ job is to identify and procure the best grapes from the best areas, and then blend the individual lots into a sublime cuvee. The 2016 “Winemakers Reserve” Red is reminiscent of a modern Bordeaux, seamlessly melding fruit and oak characteristics in both the aroma and the flavor. Full-bodied and rich, yet also accessible, it’s an artistic masterpiece of winemaking.
