2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
Columbia Valley, Washington
The 2016 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a bold and expressive nose of blackberries and a tight core of dark fruit. Medium to full-bodied, flavors of dusty black plum, cassis and currant integrate seamlessly with oak tones of vanilla and soft sawdust, showing a rich complexity across the mid-palate. The wine lingers with well-structured tannins that are still lively and slightly grippy on the long finish.
Composition: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot
Production: 2,484 cases
2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
Effusive aromas of blackberry, black cherry, freshly turned earth and subtly warm toasty oak notes. The palate is dense and richly concentrated with fine grained tannin and good length. Flavors of dark chocolate, dark berry compote, and hints of dried thyme and leather are abundant.
The 2017 harvest wrapped up early fall following summer heat spurts and a growing season that saw significant rain throughout the state, ending a five-year drought. The season began with rainfall that refilled reservoirs and replenished soils. Harvest began early at a normal pace, and then progressed rapidly during a heat wave in late August and early September. Temperatures cooled mid-September, slowing the harvest pace and allowing grapes to ripen gradually. This is a strong quality vintage.
