2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
Red Mountain, Washington State

Purchase | Tech Sheet

Tasting Notes
Cassis, dark black fruits, clove, savory and eucalyptus leaves, carry through the long finish on a platform of fine grained tannins. This wine will age well but is very approachable now.

Vintage
A return to another “classic” Washington growing season. Bud break occurred slightly later than usual, but a warming trend beginning in late June carried through October for optimal ripening.
