Winemaker's Notes

"Classic cabernet and classic Washington. Tobacco and cedar over exotic green scents tell you it's cabernet, and that bright and generous red fruit tells you you're in Washington. Warm in tone, this has a rich red cherry flavor that gains focus from a crystalline minerality. It's clean and precise in the finish, the minerality sufficient to pair with something equally classic, like grilled lamb chops."
-Wines & Spirits

This deep violet Cabernet Sauvignon begins with hints of rose petal and blackberry mingled with toasted oak. Waves of berries flood the palate and lead to smooth mouth-filling flavors of leather and chocolate. Hints of cassis, blackberry and cedar linger on the palate. Match this wine with your best steaks and chops for memorable meals. For a change of pace serve Gordon Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon with fresh "wild" salmon off the barbeque.

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
