We are pleased to introduce our new Red Mountain Cabernet to showcase one of Washington's warmest and most renown regions known for rich concentrated red wines. We crafted this Red Mountain Cab to highlight the ripe fruit characteristics and intense aromatics and focused tannins reflective of this very hot and dry region. Our wine offers aromas and flavors of black cherry, cardamom spice and dark chocolate with an elegant structure and refined tannins. We hope you enjoy this ultimate sense of place. Food Pairings: Foods - beef, hearty pastas, rack of lamb. Spices - cracked black pepper, rosemary.

With 2% Syrah blended in, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain features classic black fruit aromas that are rich and lush, with nots of soft oak spices and purple flowers. Medium to full-bodied, the Cabernet is youthfully tight and rigid in the mouth, with grippy, structured tannins and a complex, mineral-driven tension, showing exceptional quality. The finish is dusty, with a composed yet tight complexity that will age beautifully over the next decade. 3,051 cases were made.

Aromas of green herb, coffee ground, black fruit and clove lead to dark fruit flavors backed by slightly gritty-seeming tannins. Chocolate notes linger on the finish. There are good things here, but they don't all seem in harmony at present, with the barrel influence showing prominently.
