Opaque purple with aromas of smoky black, black plum, cocoa with equally smoky fruit, cigar box, mint, dark chocolate and flinty flavours on the palate. Food-friend acidity, pair with grilled meats. Columbia Winery was founded in 1962.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: lamb Bolognese, grilled New York striploin, barbecued ribs in sauce, hard cheese, braised pork shanks.

Juicy dark cherry, fleeting smoke and oaky notes. Beautiful WA.

Aromas of currant, blackberry, and mocha, along with cedar and smoky hints. Full bodied, with smooth tannins, bright acidity, and plush, ripe fruit flavours. Enjoy with a grilled steak.
