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.
