Feather Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Cabernet Sauvignon from Columbia Valley, Washington
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Fresh and expressive, offering ripe blackberry, rose petal and sandalwood aromas. The flavors are vibrant yet focused, layered with dark plum, blueberry, semi-sweet chocolate and clove, wrapped with silky texture and a lengthy finish.
"Showing the most sweet fruit and oak of the lineup, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Feather is made by Randy Dunn of Dunn Vineyards in Napa Valley. A 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that spends 22 months in 100% French oak, it is loaded with sweet black raspberry jam, creme de cassis, charred toast and crushed flower-like nuances that flow to a full-bodied, voluptuously textured Cabernet that builds in tannin and depth with air. Gorgeously pure and seamless, it needs 3-4 years in the cellar and will evolve gracefully for 12-15 years. Drink now-2025."
The Wine Advocate
"This is Long Shadows’s 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, offering
a sharp-edged wine with a brilliant mix of berry,
cherry and black fruits, sparked by juicy acids.
There’s spice and chocolate highlights as well,
with a purity and focus that suggests cellaring to
add more complexity over the course of a decade
"Firm tannins surround the dark berry and currant flavors, casting a black pepper spell on the lingering finish. The tannins need time to soften. Best after 2015."
