Alder Ridge (Horse Heaven Hills)

Situated 15 miles west of the small town of Patterson, Washington, Alder Ridge is set atop a series of arid, sparsely vegetated ridges that shoot up nearly 1000 feet at their highest point above the great Columbia River below. The view is breathtaking – the bounty, endless. This hot landscape receives just 5 inches of rain each year, on average, and it’s precisely this climate and the steep, south-facing slopes that make Alder Ridge the perfect spot for growing high quality wine grapes. The region received Horse Heaven Hills AVA certification in August 2005 and is now one of the most prestigious grape growing regions in Washington State. Alder Ridge wines are small production and very limited. Check with Siema office for current vintage

Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points, Wine Enthusiast, November 2012. “Young, supple and stylish, this mixes notes of berry, plum and cassis, demonstrating poise and richness. The barrel flavors are smoothly integrated; the finish is rich and dark, with a strong streak of cacao.”
