2012 Smasne Cellars County Line Red

Columbia Valley

“In August 1972 I made my first trip down County Line Road. Fourth Generation, I was born and raised on a small farm in the heart of Washington Wine Country, the Yakima River Valley. Over 100 years ago my great-grandfather, Carl Smasne, made his way to the Yakima Valley in search of the golden opportunity and with his heart set on being a farmer. He finally settled and homesteaded along the Yakima River, West of the town of Prosser, and began to develop the regions shrub-steppe desert. With the introduction of irrigation into the Yakima Valley, came the opportunity to farm better ground, and in the early 1940’s, the Smasne family moved to County Line Road in the Roza irrigation district. There, on County Line, my passion for wine began. Although much has changed over the years, my father still farms there today and our family still holds close to a way of life and love for the area that has been passed on for generations.” -Robert O. Smasne

Tasting notes

Smasne Cellars County Line exemplifies the goal of producing wines of extraordinary character and value. This red wine blend of  56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Malbec, 18% Syrah and 7% Merlot showcases  expressive dark fruit flavors around a solid framework and lush finish.  It is loaded with ripe berry flavors, cherry, hints of spice, chocolate, mocha, and a rich roundness of well-integrated oak. With a backbone of Cabernet Sauvignon it is bold, yet balanced. With a splash of Syrah and Malbec it provides refined tannins and a pleasant lushness of expressive huckleberry and blackberry.
