Tasting Notes
The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Walla Walla Valley has aromas of brambly fruit, black cherry and whispers of anise and truffle. On the palate, these notes are reiterated with the addition of chocolate, and an occasional note of pepper, followed by dark blackberry. The mouth-feel of this wine is especially smooth with supple tannins.
