Winemaker's Notes

The Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and 2% Syrah. The Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone of the blend, adding structure and body, while the Merlot adds flavor and depth. The small amount of Syrah increases fruit and overall softness. This Cabernet Sauvignon is integrated, complex and well-structured, yet soft and appealing throughout. The wine is pleasantly aromatic with essences of rose petal, ripe berry and a light earthiness. Flavors of dark fruit, cassis and mint are followed by hints of mocha, chocolate and spice. The grapes for our Cabernet Sauvignon were sourced from our Walla Walla Valley estate vineyards: 67% Pepper Bridge Vineyard and 33% Seven Hills Vineyard. The grapes were hand-harvested and sorted, and then fermented in small stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged 18 months in 67% French oak, 17% American oak and 16% Hungarian oak.

The Pepper Bridge Winery partners wanted to produce Syrah and other varietals from estate-vineyard grapes, but to not diminish Pepper Bridge Winery’s tight focus on their world-famous Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The solution was the construction and startup of Amavi Cellars.
