Cascade Cliffs Vineyard & Winery

Cascade Cliffs Vineyard & Winery Offering primarily red wines, Cascade Cliffs offers Bordeaux wines originally grown in the south of France as well as Piedmont varieties originating in northwest Italy. With the release of the 1997 Cascade Cliffs Barbera, winemaker Bob Lorkowski joined the ranks of pioneer winemakers in bringing the first Washington Barbera to market. Cascade Cliff's signature style is to use multiple strains of oak in the aging process. The winery uses three strains of oak: French, Hungarian and American.

  Barbera Estate Grown, Columbia Valley
Barbera, a significant Piedmont grape, is known for its versatility and adapatability to almost any environment. In the past, growers have often planted it in their poorest plots to produce large yields and make rustic, tart table wines, but with the modernization of Italian viticulture and winemaking techniques, babera is today producing powerful, concentrated, and distinctive wines. Barbera wines generally possess very dark berry flavors, including blackberry, black currant, raisen, and prune, as well as hints of clove, nutmeg, black pepper, and smoke. They can be either fresh, fruity, and youthful, or produced in a drier style that ages well for five to seven years.
  Cabernet, Columbia Valley
Often regarded as the world's premium red variety as it is able to grow under a large variety of conditions and still retain its varietal characteristics. Grown extensively in M├ędoc, the heart of Bordeaux, and all winegrowing regions of the world. Cabernet sauvignon is often blended with cabernet franc and merlot. Ageing and oak treatment will generally see the primary fruit qualities change to that of preserved fruits. Tannins are firm and gripping when young and can provide a strong puckering sensation that diminishes with age to give a fine grain full mouth feel.
  Dolcetto Estate Grown, Columbia Valley
Dolcetto (little sweet one) is a black wine grape variety widely grown in the Piedmont region of Italy. Unlike it's Italian name Dolcetto is traditionally a dry wine. Italian Dolcetto wines can be tannic and fruit driven with moderate levels of acidity. We've handcrafted our Dolcetto to minmize the tannins and make it perfect for drinking now.
  Goat Head Red
A blend of Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet, Nebbiolo, Zinfandel and Barbera. Named after a goat that used to wonder the cliffs above the vineyard this easy drinking red wine is designed to enjoy without deliberation. Light and fruity with a clean finish. It's a pizza, pasta, burger wine!
  Merlot, Estate Grown
Merlot is the principle red variety of Bordeaux. Our Estate Grown Merlots "oak" well and taste sweet even when fermented to dry. This varietal presents the palate with an abundance of fruit flavours. Moderate silky tannins further compliment this versatile variety.
  Mile Marker 88.5
A proprietary winemaker's blend. Named after the milepost that designates it's vineyard location. Smooth and hearty with a soft mouth feel and pleasant yet mysterious finish. Hard to come by and only available at the winery.
  Nebbiolo Estate Grown, Columbia Valley
Nebbiolo may get its name from Piedmontese word nebbia which means "fog." You may be more familiar with it as Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara and Ghemme. In Italy these red wines can be massively tannic in youth often taking years to become approachable.
  Petite Sirah, Columbia Valley
The Petite Sirah grape is most likely an offshoot of the Duriff Rhone grape, grown in France, and is not related to the Syrah grape. Until the 1970's, Petite Sirah's claim to fame was as a blending wine. Since then Petite Sirah has emerged as a noble varietal in its own right. Petite Sirah performs best in mild coastal regions, and produces intensely peppery wines with substantial tannins. The colors of Petite Sirah wine range from a rich red to an almost inky deep purple. Petite Sirah wine combines rich berry flavors and its trademark spiciness. It is reminiscent of the flavors of black pepper, blackberry jam, blackberries, oranges and plums. Petite Sirah ages very well and can "hold its fruit" for 10 to 20 years.
  Symphony Estate Grown, Columbia Valley
Developed Dr. Harold Olmo, Professor Emeritus of the Department of Viticulture and Enology at the University of California (Davis). Symphony is a cross between Muscat of Alexandria and Grenache Gris and often has a slight spiciness with pleasant fruit aromas. Come visit us and taste the Columbia Gorge's only Symphony. It's a sumptuous blend of apricot and nectarine on the nose with a citrus finish.
  Syrah Estate Grown, Columbia Valley
Syrah as it's known in Europe, South America and the USA is also known by Shiraz in Australia and Canada. Syrah can show powerful floral scents with blended with berries, chocolate, espresso and black pepper. With proper aging a refreshing layoring of flavors emerge that are earthy with savory hints of leather and white truffle. Our Syrah exhibits an earthy nose that is lifted by aromas of cedar and violet. Eyes reminisce about its deep purple color while soft tannins induce a velvet smooth mouth feel.
  Zinfandel, Estate Grown
Zinfandel is often called the "mystery" grape because its European origins are oddly uncertain. What is known is only that bottled wines bearing the varietal label "Zinfandel" appeared as early as 1883 in California. Hence, Zin is known as "California's grape."
