TASTING NOTES 
With layered ripe aromatics of blackberry, raspberry, cassis, with a touch of spice and earthiness, this wine is distinctly Cabernet Sauvignon on the nose. On the palate, this wine has a great mouthfeel that mingles with layers of flavors ranging from black cherry, blackberry, to currant with a slight touch of oak that is balanced with great acidity and medium tannins on the dry finish.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES
This classic Washington Cabernet Sauvignon is a very complex wine that has great vineyard sites that make up the blend. With all of the fruit harvested in late September to late October, the perfectly ripe fruit was balanced with near ideal acidity. All components of this wine were fermented in stainless steel upright tanks with 796 yeast. This wine has finished 100% malolactic fermentation then aged for 12 months in 2 & 3-year-old French Oak barrels.
