Nine Hats Red 2021, Columbia Valley, Washington

This richly textured red blend offers a vibrant intensity of color and aromatics. Layer upon layer of black cherry, sweet spice and dried herb flavors provide a beautiful complexity and long-lasting finish. The silkiness of the Cabernet Sauvignon from Horse Heaven Hills and the richness of the Merlot and Malbec create the perfect balance of elegance and structure. 2021 vintage: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Malbec, 22% Merlot. Nine Hats was born out of the renowned Long Shadows Vintners – a winery dedicated to making world-class wines from Washington fruit. But not every moment calls for these wines, so we set out to make ordinary occasions special in their own right by using Long Shadows’ tremendous winemaking facilities and knowledge to make a line of everyday wines. The result was delicious, approachable, thoroughly drinkable wines, at a price point that meant we could enjoy them any day of the week.
