Tasting Notes

This “Old Block” Cabernet sourced from Columbia Valley and Red Mountain vineyards opens with subtle hints of green bell peppers, and aromas of baking spices. The mouth-feel is jammy and full of flavors of cooked red meats. The finish has lingering hints of fruits and dried fig. Enjoy this wine now and for years to come!

Other Notes

Mature vines with deep, established roots struggle and naturally produce fewer clusters with smaller berries that ripen slowly. This combination of lower yields, smaller berries, and longer hang time creates wines that are richer, more concentrated, and complex. We found that using older, prominent vineyards brings an extra dimension of complexity and polish to this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Our minimalist approach to winemaking using indigenous yeast during fermentation, without filtering or fining, allows the fruit from these special Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard blocks to shine.
