2022 Greenwing Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2022 Vintage

This beautifully structured wine draws you in with alluring aromas of Bing cherry, rooibos tea, loamy earth, and graham cracker, with notions of cinnamon, clove, and wild herbs. On the palate, shapely, fine-grained tannins and energetic acidity add poise and verve to the red currant, raspberry and wild strawberry flavors as they build to a long, dramatic finish.

Greenwing Columbia Valley

Columbia Valley

One of the world’s most unique and diverse wine regions, grapes have been grown in the Columbia Valley since the early 1900s. The valley stretches from the Okanagan National Forest in the north all the way to Dalles, Oregon in the south, with the majority of the appellation located on the Columbia River Plateau. To the west, the beautiful Cascade Mountains serve as a natural barrier to the Pacific Ocean, creating a dry, desert-like climate, with warm sunny days, cool nights and an average rainfall, of just 6 to 8 inches annually.

Located between the 46th and 47th parallels, where Bordeaux and Burgundy are also situated, the region is marked by its distinctive soils. Though it is acclaimed for a number of grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted grape in the region—and rightfully so. Grown in the valley’s arid, sun-kissed climate, Cabernet develops beautiful depth and complexity, with velvety tannins, alluring aromas, and lush berry flavors.

Greenwing Teal Duck

About the Greenwing Teal Duck

Indigenous to the Pacific Northwest, the breeding grounds of the green-wing teal are located in the Columbia River Basin and the northern river valleys of Eastern Washington. Like the Greenwing Cabernet, the green-wing teal duck is vibrantly hued and highly gregarious, forming close-knit flocks that migrate throughout the United States.
