Expressive and refined, with lively red currant, orange zest and spice flavors that build complexity toward a vibrant finish.

PRODUCER

Bergevin Lane

Bergevin Lane Vineyards is a Washington State winery that sources its grapes from vineyards in Washington’s Walla Walla, Columbia and Yakima regions. It was founded in 2002 by Gary Bergevin, Amber Lane and Annette Bergevin. The estate makes about 11,000 cases annually. Its flagship Cabernet Sauvignons, Syrahs, Merlots and Pinot Noirs are bottled under the Bergevin Lane label. It also makes value-priced wines under the Calico label.

REGION

United States, Washington, Columbia Valley

Columbia Valley AVA is larger than some states. At 18,000 square miles, or 11 million acres, the appellation covers almost half of Washington State and a small part of Oregon on the south side of the Columbia River. Established in 1984, Columbia Valley contains numerous sub appellations within its boundaries, including Yakima Valley AVA and Walla Walla AVA, both large and important wine districts. Columbia Valley AVA, generally called the Columbia Basin by Pacific Northwesterners, is in the Columbia River Plateau, and the AVA also includes a section of northeastern Oregon. There are dozens of microclimates within this appellation of about 7,000 vineyard acres. Many kinds of grapes are grown in the Columbia Valley, though the principal grapes planted are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling, Syrah, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. Eastern Washington experiences very hot summers and cold winters, and the northern latitude means that Washington vineyards receive several more hours of sun in the summer than California vineyards. Grapes in Washington therefore have time to develop significant tannins and overall ripeness.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
