Sineann Cabernet Sauvignon Baby Poux Vineyard Reserve 2014, Columbia Valley, Washington

Sineann is a small producer of highly intense wine in Yamhill County, Oregon. Winemaking is meticulous. All fruit is hand sorted, delicately destemmed, punched down by hand, gently pressed and gravity racked. The wines are aged in new and one year old French oak. “Baby Poux” was the name bestowed on a special block of Champoux Vineyards by Woodward Canyon’s winemaker, Rick Small. It was the first section of vineyard new owner Paul Champoux set to work on after taking over the old (and legendary) Mercer Ranch Vineyard. As the vineyard gets older, the wines off Baby Poux are getting more and more complex and interesting.
