Januik Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Columbia Valley, Washington

This 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon includes grapes from Champoux, Weinbau, Quintessence, Shaw and Lady Hawk vineyards. After destemming and crushing, grapes were fermented on their skins for an average of 9 days. After being pressed off, the wine was aged for 22 months in equal amounts of new and once used French Oak barrels to improve its already lengthy finish. Racking every 5 months helped create a wine with considerable structure and suppleness. This supple, rich Cabernet Sauvignon is packed with currant and black cherry flavors as well as plum, chocolate and vanilla notes in the nose. Its texture is quite refined and shows great structure throughout the mouth,
imparting a long, luxurious finish that was developed in part from the use of new French Oak barrels. Blend: 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot.
