This Cabernet is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot. It was aged in 38% new French oak for 22 months. Our vineyards in Washington for Cabernet Sauvignon are simply stunning. The wine can be reminiscent of the Old World and historical California from the 1980s and 90s, a rare style today.
"Dark ruby with soft purple highlights, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has an impactful and precise nose of juicy plum, dark cherry and blackberry essence that waft with elegant French oak tones of vanilla, cinnamon and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has a succulent mouthfeel with oak flavors that bind effortlessly to juicy, plump and dark blackberry essence with subtle flavors of dried herbs and bitter dark chocolate. With a long, drawn-out finish, the wine displays all of its complexities as it lingers on the palate with persistence and a tannic grip. This wine is about layers and texture. Give it a try!"
