Wine Enthusiast - "Drawing from prestigious vineyard sources that include Seven Hills, Pepper Bridge and Alder Ridge, this generous Cabernet is redolent with notes of cherry, cocoa, herbs and dusty spices. The broad, tart cherry flavors are supported with a firm tannic structure that will keep this wine ageing nicely in the cellar for years to come."

Washington State is exploding onto the world’s wine scene. The second largest wine-producing region in the United States, the number of wineries has more than doubled in the past decade to more than 900 today. The great majority of the state’s 50,000+ acres of vineyards are grown on the east side of the Cascade mountains, where they enjoy 300+ days of sunshine a year, well-draining soils and a diurnal shift ideal for wine grapes.
Washington is not defined by a single grape variety, with nearly 70 varieties to explore. Out of these, the top five are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Syrah. Winemakers and grape growers are driven by a pioneering spirit, and aren’t afraid to experiment with new techniques in an ever-growing quest to make world-class wine.
