The Soldier - working the long hours, quietly carrying the heavy weight of duty with love and courage. The Soldier is sourced from the exceptional vineyards of the Columbia Valley.
The Soldier has a brooding dark garnet color with brick red edges. There are aromas of baked blueberry pie, cocoa powder and plum with savory nuances like fresh sage, tobacco leaf and ground coee. Immediate fruit flavors like dark cherry and currant are accentuated by clove, sage and toasty oak. This is a big wine with tannin that turns from chewy to dusty through the mid-palate. Bright and balanced acidity leads to a complex and structured finish. Drinking beautifully now and has terrific cellaring potential.
