Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 3% Syrah, 1% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot.

The 2006 vintage was a great growing season with mild conditions and no real stress for the vines. Significant rainfalls in early spring gave a good head start to vine growth while drier weather around bloom time led to optimum pollination and excellent fruit set. Summer months underwent classif Eastern Washington weather with quite hot temperatures and no rainfall. Moderate temperatures in early fall allowed for longer hang time resulting in deeper color intensity and fruit characteristics.

The perfect combination of ripe fruit, smooth tannins and balanced acidity makes our 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon an approachable wine of great expression. Elegant and ruby colored with a delicate nose of Bing cherry and chocolate aromas, the supple palate shows juicy mixed berry flavors with silky tannins and a round, smooth black licorice finish.

Enjoy this medium-bodied wine paired with Moroccan couscous with lamb and chicken, braised pork with egg noodles, veal scaloppini served with a wild mushroom cream sauce and polenta, or an assortment of artisan cheeses.

Can age up to 2 to 3 years.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
