Winemaker's Notes:

Foreshadow Cabernet Sauvignon showcases best J Bookwalter Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Columbia Valley, Red Mountain and Yakima Valley appellations. Both aromatically and on the palate the wine displays a medley of dark fruits led by plums, blackberries, blueberries and figs. Secondary and tertiary notes are more subtle and offer hints of truffles, violets, baking spices and sandalwood followed by a warm cola bath. The wine enters the palate sweet and round and finishes with polished, fine grained tannins. The lush, long finish is complimented by the natural sweetness and acidity of the wine. Recommended cellaring 6 – 12 years.

Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Syrah
