PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Part of the larger Columbia Valley, the AVA lies between the Horse Heaven Hills from which it is named and the Columbia River. Hot and dry, the region benefits from strong winds coming off the river that provide a cool respite from the hot sun, toughen the grape skins, and stress the plants, thus forcing them to produce high-quality, ultra-tripe berries that perfectly balance fruit characters with acidity and structure. The soil here is well-drained and composed of volcanic ash overlaid with sandy loam that has been deposited by ancient floods. The vines’ roots are forced to dig deep for water and in so doing bring subtle terroir-driven characters to the wines that are made from their fruit.
With all these gifts of nature, it is no wonder that Columbia Crest chose to establish their winery here!

The 2016 Columbia Crest H3 Merlot is a mono-varietal that has been aged in a combination of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels for 15 months. Full-bodied and velvety-smooth, it abounds with aromas and flavors of cassis, blackberries and black raspberries. On the palate, these generous fruit characters are layered with subtle notes of baking spices, cocoa, and brambly earth.
