Columbia Crest H3 Red Blend Wine
Les Chevaux, (French for “the horses”) is named for the wild horses that once roamed the Horse Heaven Hills. This red blend is focused and generous, open textured and inviting, offering cherry, currant, red plum, and raspberry jam flavors.
Vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills are the source and inspiration behind the H3 wines. The hills have been home to Columbia Crest winery for more than two decades. Winemaker Juan Muñoz Oca combines innovative and traditional winemaking practices to highlight bold flavors in the wines that capture the unique terroir of the region.
