Product Description

Visionary and life-long farmer Bill Powers planted Badger Mountain Vineyard with his son Greg in 1982. Just six years later, well-before the word organic became trendy and then universal, Bill transitioned his 80-acre estate to organic viticulture and in 1990 Badger Mountain Vineyard became the first Certified Organic wine grape vineyard in Washington State. “The Badger Mountain N.S.A. (no sulfites added) series represents our “to be certified organic wines”, and carry the USDA Organic Logo. “To be certified organic wines” must contain less than 10 parts per million sulfites, among other criteria.” 2016 vintage – 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 1% Malbec. All the lots were fermented in upright stainless steel fermenters with PDM yeast, with 100% malolactic fermentation completed in stainless steel tanks. Nice aromatics of dark rich black fruits like blackberry and black currant along with a hint of tobacco on the nose. Palate: Ripe blueberries, you get the complexity of cassis, mocha, and a touch of molasses. This leads to a nice dark fruit finish that is balanced with medium tannins and a slight touch of acidity.
