2015 Three Rivers River's Red, Columbia Valley
We thought the 2014 vintage was impeccable only to have and even better 2015 vintage! The warm, dry growing season led to intense concentration and rich flavors. The vines were optimized by two great vintages in a row, which is apparent when you taste this 2015 River’s Red. Blackberry, blueberry and currant aromas give way to flavors of juicy dark fruit, cedar and tea.
Food Pairing Notes
Strikingly complex, this easy-drinking red blend pairs perfectly with baked ziti and spicy sausage.

2015 was the earliest grape harvest we have ever had due to the above average warm weather throughout the year! The grapes were harvested from September 1 to September 23, 2015. The fruit quality is spectacular from this very warm vintage.
