The number preceding the NV indicates how many Notebook blends we have produced. For over 30 years we have been crafting wines that are more compelling and interesting than single vintage and varietal wines by employing the centuries-old practice of blending wine lots from multiple vintages (Vertical Blending) with multiple grape varieties (Horizontal Blending). Each lot of wine is carefully selected each year for Notebook Red Blend based upon the mature flavors of the older vintages and the vibrant fruit characteristics of the younger vintages. The result is a wine that offers, fruit, structure, approachability and exceptional value.

Our sixth Notebook wine is a delicious Cabernet blend with traditional red varieties that flourish in our hot, dry climate. Aromatically rich and delicious to quaff, this dry wine is ready to drink from summer barbeques through to winter meals. Rich and fresh flavors taste well above its price and category. The wines aromatics display savory 3- and 4-year barrel- aged complexity. There’s heaps of youthful red fruits like black cherries, plums, red currants and figs wrapped with cedar, caramel and chocolate. Succulent smooth fruit begins, with flavors of bakers chocolate, black cherry, black berry, toast, dried herbs, tobacco and cola finish. The combination of long-aged powerful Cabernet and fresh fruity young Syrah from Washington’s ripest vintage fill this deliciously affordable wine.
