Wine of the month: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaking: We have always produced a Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It has been a part of us from the very beginning and as such, we have consistently procured fruit from both Cold Creek Vineyard and Pepper Bridge Vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley. This year we have strayed just a touch from our usual vineyard selections for this bottling. We have sourced fruit from Windrow Vineyard as well, some of the oldest fruit in the Walla Walla Valley, originally planted between 1978 and 1983.

Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvgion 

Alcohol level: 14%

Vintage: 2008

Price per piece: $50

Tasting Notes: Besides vagaries of the vintage, the addition of this old vines fruit to the existing blend has produced a distinctive wine. Typical in color—a deep ruby red—the departure begins with aromatics. A slightly more restrained nose reveals very classic markers of Cabernet: dark fruits of black cherry and currant, leather and muted cigar box spices. On the palate, a distinctive note of ground white pepper, dried sour cherries and a splash of soy, give way to a hint of sweetness recalling dark brown sugar and tart, red plums. Such delicious nuances grace each sip, yet medium bodied in texture provides a wine that is approachable both with and without a main course. Perhaps it is best tasted in the cool of the evening, simply sipping it in the company of friends.
