Cabernet from this iconic 40-year-old vineyard consistently delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. The wine offers black cherry, chocolate notes with typical Cold Creek weight and user friendly power. This wine pairs best with beef, hearty pastas, and veal.
Review
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard wassourced from a site planted in 1973 with the wine aged for 21 months in French oak. Dark ruby-colored, it has an earthy character as well as aromas of spice box, rose petal, cassis, and black cherry. Fleshy, full-bodied, and mouth-filling, it has layered savory fruit, incipient complexity, plenty of fine-grained tannin, and a lengthy, pure finish. Drink it from 2011 to 2021.

Wine maker notes
Cabernet from this iconic 35-year-old vineyard always delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. This is a dense wine with great aging potential. Fruit is the star of the show for our Cold Creek Cabernet!

Producer
CLAAR CELLARS is our family owned Estate Winery. My parents, Audrienne and Russell Claar developed the first farm in 1950 and planted the first grapes in 1980. Bob and I were both Active Duty Naval Officers when in 1983, he retired and I transferred into the Naval Reserve. Since then we have developed over 120 acres of premium vineyards. Our vineyards are on south and southwest facing hillsides above the Columbia River. In this distinct microclimate, located within the White Bluffs growing region, we are endowed with an almost ideal combination of climate and soil. This region receives more heat than growing areas to the west of us and avoids the more frequent frosts and killer freezes to the east. Also our south facing hillsides allow cold air to drain in the spring and collect more heat during the growing season. Our sandy, rocky soil is especially conducive to growing quality grapes and researchers have frequently stated that this region is one of the best in the state of Washington. After 13 years of selling grapes to wineries throughout Washington, as well as from New York to Mississippi to New Mexico, and of being told of their unique taste and quality from numerous Winemakers, we decided to take the steps necessary to become an Estate Winery. With the 1997 crush we became an Estate Winery processing and bottling all of our grapes in our own 10,000 square foot facility. In 1999 we added a 4,000 square foot Temperature and Humidity controlled Barrel Building and in 2012 a 10,000 square foot case-good storage facility all of which are heated and cooled through ground water and excess heat produced by the glycol tank cooling system. We have award-winning Premium wines including: Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Sangiovese, and newly planted Pinot Gris, Viognier, Malbec and Petite Sirah. Our vineyards and winery are Sustainable with LIVE, IOBC and Salmon Safe certification. CLAAR CELLARS -- an Estate winery committed to quality!
