Winemaker's Notes:


#61 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

"Poised and refined, almost elegant, this has a gorgeous core of currant, blackberry and dark plum flavors that ride on a sleek, seamless frame. The finish picks up hints of coffee and sweet spices as this lingers enticingly against a backbone of judicious acidity. A Cabernet with power and finesse. Best from 2010 through 2018."

My Notes:

About Januik Winery:

Family-owned. Artisan winemaking. Acclaimed Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. You’ve heard dozens of wineries make these claims, and while these statements are certainly true of Januik wines, they seem a little cliché too.

So rather than tell you who we are, we invite you to try our wines or visit us at our new Woodinville winery and let us earn your trust. If Januik becomes your go-to wine, we’ve done our job.
