ROUTE 12 COLUMBIA VALLEY
Route 12 meanders 431 miles across the entire state of Washington. This label celebrates our state’s rustic beauty, while the wine captures the soul of the Washington terroir.
The Columbia Valley is home to the most storied AVAs in Washington state. Predominantly south-facing, Washington’s largest viticultural region couples warm sun and great drainage, thanks to the Columbia River, to produce wines that are fruit-forward, yet retain some of the structure of European wines.
Bright red cherry and savory herbal notes on the nose, with hints of baking spice and raspberry. Vibrant on the fore palate, with round and supple tannins on the mid palate, leading to a pleasing, savory finish.
