Winemaker Notes

Made from what is arguably Washington State's best vineyard for the variety, the Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a supple and well-textured wine. The nose reveals cassis and blackberry fruit along with cocoa and spice notes. It lingers over the palate with supple, well-balanced tannins. This wine is poised for a very long life in your cellar.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Januik’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Champoux Vineyard offers terrific, complex notes of lavender, graphite, cassis and sweet oak in a medium to full-bodied, elegant, balanced package. I love its aromatics, but like a lot of these 2013s, it’s streamlined, narrow and shorter than I expected. Nevertheless, it has ripe tannin and I’m sure will drink nicely for at least a decade.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Broad and expressive, with black cherry, licorice and cedar flavors that come together harmoniously on the persistent finish. Tannins grip but let the flavors through. Best from 2018 through 2021.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Coming from one of the state's top Cabernet sites, this wine offers reserved aromas of earth, dried leaves and herb, cocoa and dusty cherry. The palate shows precision and balance, with a focus on elegance of expression.

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.

Horse Heaven Hills Wine

Columbia Valley, Washington

"Surely this is Horse Heaven!”

Its wide prairies and rolling expanses led an early pioneer to proclaim that the region looked like “horse heaven,” and as a result, the area was appropriately named. Horse Heaven Hills is in south central Washington state, geographically bound on its northern border by the Yakima River and in the south, by the larger Columbia River.

Its proximity to the Columbia River contributes to a variety of climactic factors that dramatically affect its grapes. In particular, an increase in wind from changes in pressure along the river, which flows from the cool and wet Pacific Ocean, inland to Washington’s hot and arid plains, creates 30% more wind than there would be otherwise. These winds moderate temperatures, protect against mold and rot, reduce the risk of early and late season frosts, diminish canopy size and toughen grape skins.

The vineyards bordering the river are on steep, south-facing, well-exposed slopes, with well-drained, sandy-loam soils. But the soils of the appellation are diverse throughout, ranging from wind-blown sand and loess, Missoula Flood sediment, and rocky basalt. Horse Heaven Hills has an arid continental climate with elevations ranging from 200 to 1,800 feet.

The first vines of the appellation were planted in 1972 in an optimal spot now referred to as the Champoux Vineyard. Today it remains the source of some of Washington’s most desirable and expensive Cabernet Sauvignons. In fact, the appellation as a whole boasts many of Washington’s top scoring wines. Its primary grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Riesling.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
