2016 Three Rivers Streamlet Red, Columbia Valley
2016 is the inaugural vintage of our Streamlet red blend. This is a vibrant wine with sweet aromas of freshly picked blueberries and cherries. Dark fruit swirls on the palate with accents of cedar that fills the palate. Firm tannins linger on the finish and add structure to this bold wine.

2016 started out with above average temperatures reaching record heat in April. This jumpstarted our growing season and resulted in an earlier bloom than in 2015. Cooler June and July months slowed things down, allowing us to catch up in the vineyard. Temperatures heated back up in August and the grapes were harvested from September 12 – September 27, 2016.
