On the nose this wine boasts aromas of cassis, blackberry cordial, and Rainier cherry with hints of pepper and baking spice.
On the palate, this Cabernet Sauvignon has flavors of semi-sweet chocolate, cherry, and bright red fruit, finishing with supple tannin.
Harvest 2014 started with the scare of drought. Luckily, some perfectly timed spring rain helped develop nice vineyard canopies. Likely due to the dry winter, we had an early bloom and an even earlier ripening than 2013. Not only that, we had one of the largest earthquakes in decades rock the valley on the eve of harvest. Undeterred, but with many vintners picking up the pieces of broken barrels and spilled wine, harvest 2014 charged on with perfect, mild weather through the end of the growing season. This led to high quality grapes and even higher quality wine which we are delighted to share with you.
