With its classic varietal Cabernet profile, this focused wine shows beautiful balance of bramble fruit, cocoa, mocha, and herbal notes. Layers of blackberry and cassis mingle with polished tannins through an earthy finish.

The aromas offer notes of black cherry, plum, spice, coffee and herbs. Well-balanced coffee, chocolate and cherry flavors follow. The structure and balance are impressive, with the acidity upping the interest. It delivers a whole lot of quality and value.

Plenty of cassis, damp earth, lead pencil, and leafy, tobacco-laced herbal notes emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley, which is medium to full-bodied and has beautiful purity, fine tannins, and a great finish. It's another Bordeaux style Cabernet Sauvignon from this estate that can be drunk today or cellared for over a decade. The Columbia Valley release is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that was brought up all in French oak, 25% being new. There are a whopping 67,200 cases produced, and it's a smoking wine!

Bright, dark red-ruby. Cassis, peppery herbs, tobacco leaf and graphite on the Old World nose. Firm, bright and nicely concentrated, with good sugar/acid snap and intensity to its black fruit, licorice, menthol, bitter chocolate and spice flavors. Dry but not quite austere, as there's good fruit sweetness lurking. A serious spine of building tannins gives this wine the structure to evolve and harmonize with bottle aging. In fact, this distinctly firm wine is a bit less easy to drink than the'16 was last year.

With a dense, dark-fruited core, the 2017 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of blackberry and cassis with an herbaceous undertone and soft dusty character. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has a tight mouthfeel with grainy tannins that follow a condensed dark-fruit profile. Lingering with a tight tannic edge, subtle baking spices and bitter dark chocolate flavors remain on the finish.

Solidly built and precise, featuring dark plum and fresh thyme accents, finishing with a nip of tannins. Drink now through 2027. 5,600 cases made.
