Product Description

2015 vintage – 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot. 3% Carménère, 2% Cabernet Franc from epic vineyard sites in Washington State. “With all of the lots harvested from early September to late October, we had the opportunity to blend some perfectly ripe fruit with a great balance of acidity and complexity that you might not expect from such a warm vintage. All of the lots were fermented in our upright stainless-steel fermenters with PDM yeast. This wine finished malolactic fermentation in tank, then was aged for 21months in mostly 2-year-old and 3-year-old French oak barrels, with 8% of the blend in new French oak barrels.” – from the winery. Layered aromatics of blackberries, blueberries, cedar, and currant with red raspberry high tones and a whiff of vanilla on the nose, this wine bursts wildly on the palate with very distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon flavors. From flavors of blackberries and dark cherry with a touch of pepper and spice, this wine has a nice rich mouthfeel that is very balanced with nice structure. The finish is medium in length with fine but sturdy integrated tannins and great acidity.
