About. This offering of Cabernet Sauvignon marks a slight deviation from the Portlandia winery’s roots in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, as it was sourced from world class vineyards in the Wahluke Slope region of the Columbia Valley in Washington. However, it remains in keeping with the brand’s focus on making wines to be enjoyed and to enhance the everyday.
The 2019 vintage in the Columbia Valley was shaped by cooler than usual weather, beginning with a moderate spring that led to a later bud break than past years. Temperatures throughout the summer remained temperate and mild. This allowed the gripes to ripen slowly and develop great concentration of flavor, while maintaining bright, balanced acidity. The wine was aged for 15 months in a combination of 20% new and 80% used French oak barrels.
