Winemaker's Notes

Deep, inky purple color with enticing blackberry, blueberry, and cassis fruit balancing complex spicy and toasty aromas. This bold, structured wine with concentrated blackberry and currant flavors is balanced by sweet oak for a rich, round mouth feel and a lingering finish.

This year our Washington Cabernet is once again layered with a blend of varietals as well as vineyards. The Cabernet Sauvignon component of the blend is Mercer Ranch Vineyard (48% of the total), Sundance and Katherine Leone vineyards (21%), and Kestrel and Pleasant vineyards (7%). The Merlot component is both Pleasant Vineyards and a blend of Kestrel and Sundance vineyards, each 12% of the total blend. The individual lots were fermented separately using three different yeasts to emphasize the different characteristics of the individual vineyards. After fermentation the wine was put into both French (40% new) and American oak barrels for about 14 months. The wine was taken out of barrels, the blend assembled, and then given another 4 months in barrels before bottling in May of 2002.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
