Tasting Notes

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!

Drink 2024-2039.
