This intense, fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon delivers aromas of cherry blossom and rose petals with a perfect balance of earth, mineral, deep berry flavors, and a soft, smooth cocoa finish.
The 2006 growing season was marked by weather extremes, with near record rainfallduring the early spring and record high temperatures in the early and mid-summer. Although a challenging season weather-wise, exceptional sites including the warmer parts of the Horse Heaven Hills and Wahluke Slope saw early ripening and bold tannins from the high temperatures. In the cooler growing areas later ripening prompted good color, pronounced fruit flavors and softer tannins in reds.
Outstanding bargain! A fresh, ready to drink cab with a hint of berry.
Very nice find - great everyday cab from Washington State - dark plummy fruit, nice texture and mouthfeel - grabbed a few bottles for the cellar as well
Very nice, too bad they sold out.
The wine has a very powerful (overpowering) nose unless decanted for at least and hour. Once decanted however, this is an astounding wine for the price - chewy and dense, with earthy fruit tones. I enjoyed this alone, and with a strong/creamy french blue cheese - excellent. This is not a complex wine - but for the price, if you like a big red this is outstanding. I bought one bottle to try it - just ordered a half-case for the cellar. Given the tannins, its short term in the cellar, but will be a strong add.
