Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info
Wine intensity is a measure of the concentration of flavor and aroma compounds in a wine.The stronger and more noticeable the flavors and aromas are, the higher the intensity of the wine. Intensity in wine can range from neutral (not particularly intense) to pronounced (high intensity).
Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Matthews Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament to the rich tapestry of Washington State's terroirs. Crafted from select vineyard parcels across the Columbia Valley, including esteemed sites in Horse Heaven Hills, Red Mountain, and Royal Slope AVA’s, notably the Conner Lee vineyard, this wine embodies the essence of the region. Under the stewardship of a new winemaking team, vineyard practices were refined to reduce yields by 30%, yielding small, concentrated berries. Harvested meticulously by hand over a period of weeks, the grapes undergo a meticulous process upon arrival at the winery, including hand-sorting and cold soaking. Following a 14-day fermentation and extended maceration, the wine is aged for 19 months in a blend of new and used French oak, resulting in a bold yet elegantly integrated Cabernet Sauvignon with a complex flavor profile and refined tannins.
