Winemaker's Notes

For our Genesis brand wines, we seek grapes from some of the most distinctive vineyard sites in Eastern Washington. The 2006 vintage showcases fruit from two of the state's premiere sites for Cabernet—Horse Heaven Hills and Wahluke Slope, where the desert-like conditions of very warm days, cool nights and drying winds allow the grapes to fully ripen with little threat from disease. Classic Cabernet flavors of cassis, berry and plum mingle harmoniously with light oak spice and an understated sage note. The wine is soft and plush on the palate, with velvety tannins and an aromatic finish.

Serve with pepper-crusted tenderloin, lamb roast or savory beef short ribs and creamy sage-oregano polenta.

Critical Acclaim

"Supple, focused and appealing for its pretty cherry and spice flavors, picking up a roasted meat note as the finish lingers. Best from 2010 through 2014."
