SKU 347



Winemaker's Notes:

This Cabernet Sauvignon gives aromas of ripe black fruit with notes of baked blackberry pie, warm baking spices, and earthy undertones. The voluminous fruit carries through in the mouth. Powdery tannins give structure to the wine while maintaining an elegant, balanced mouth feel, with a soft, velvety lingering finish. This wine shows great expression of the terroir of the Horse Heaven Hills.

Wine SpectatorBroad-shouldered, with a core of refined blackberry, orange peel and sage flavors that take on structure toward big but polished tannins. Best from 2020 through 2026. 9,795 cases made.

The Tasting PanelSmooth and lush with balance and style; juicy, toasty and rich, lush and long, deep and generous.

Wine EnthusiastThe aromas offer notes of baking spice, plum and blue fruit. Plump feeling but quite light. Grainy-feeling black currant and plum flavors follow. The concentration seems very light.
