2018 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Walla Walla Valley
Anna Marie and McClellan Estate Vineyards
Small open top stainless steel tanks. The cap was punched down three times per day. Free run juice was transferred to French oak barrels to complete fermentation.
22 months in French oak barrels, 50% new
2018 was an extraordinary vintage in Washington State, one of best in the last two decades. This beautiful wine brings everything into focus from such a generous growing season. Showing concentrated richness, with deep aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, savory herb, anise, cigar box, and baking spice. Supple, silky tannins lend structure to this hedonistic Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This well-balanced wine is built to age and will reward those with patience. Enjoy!
