Winemaker's Notes:

This Cab's dense and concentrated personality is filled with well-extracted cherry and spicy berry fruit. Mint, cocoa and chocolaty oak notes linger through a plush, flavorful finish. A very youthful, fruity, food-friendly Cab!

About Barnard Griffin Winery:

Barnard Griffin Winery was established in 1983 by Winemaker Rob Griffin and his wife, Deborah Barnard. Rob saw the opportunity to make great wine in Washington and moved north in 1977. Pleased with his move to Washington, he says "The northern latitude of Washington and the ideally drained sandy soils of the Columbia Valley make it possible to produce deeply concentrated wines of pronounced character."
