Winemaker's Notes

Pheasant Run Vineyard was established in early 1996 in the deep, sandy loam soils for which the Walla Walla Valley is famous. Bordeaux varietals thrive here and this 100% Estate Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies the results.

It is a blend of four separate blocks of Cabernet, each vinified separately and expertly combined to create a complex wine. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in 100% new oak, 68% French and 32% American.

It is almost brooding in the glass, with dark, earthy scents of cedar, sweet plums, tobacco leaf and wet stone. Flavors of red and black fruits and a hint of whiskey barrel on the finish complement the elegant, integrated tannins.
