Winemaker's Notes

This 2002 Artist Series was produced from grapes grown predominately at Champoux, Canoe Ridge, Woodward Canyon, Klipsun, and Tapteil vineyards. All of the grapes were harvested by hand and sorted prior to crushing. Only perfect clusters were used.

This cabernet has a beautiful nose of spicy oak integrated with ripe black cherry fruit. A rich mouth feel begins with black cherry leading towards a chocolate/mocha finish that is exotic and long. While this wine may be enjoyed now, it will benefit greatly from additional cellaring and, with proper storage, should continue to develop for ten years or more.

The evolution of the Northwest wine industry continues.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
