Description

This Cabernet embodies an enticing array of ripe red fruit, intermixed with notes of graham cracker, allspice, and dried tobacco. The addition of Syrah lends a full and rich texture on the mid-palate, further accented by bright acidity from the Petit Verdot, sweet red fruit from the Merlot and luscious raspberry notes supplied by the Malbec. The soft and supple mouthfeel is supported by sweet oak tannins and fresh fruit character, finishing with a juicy acidity that is characteristic of Horse Heaven Hills.

Vineyard

Located between the Columbia River and the Yakima Valley, Horse Heaven Hills is characterized by a dry desert landscape where strong winds blow continuously across the vineyards.

Proximity to the river moderates temperatures and provides a consistent source of water to irrigate the vines in what is one of Washington’s warmest appellations.

The area also experiences diurnal shifts between extended sunny, warm days and cool evenings.

As a result, Cabernet Sauvignon from this region shows ripeness and depth while maintaining optimal natural acidity, making it some of the most sought-after fruit in Washington State.
