Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Note

2016 was another hot year that initiated an early Walla Walla harvest. This Cabernet Sauvignon is brimming with scents of black currant and dark fruit with wisps of crushed rose petals and Walla Walla’s famous mineral-rich loam soil. The palate has a rounded, medium, chalky tannin texture front-loaded with black currant, plum and black cherry fruit accompanied by hints of French oak spice and hints of white pepper. A lingering finish of heightened cherry melded with a soft note of wood toast completes this wine.
