2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

This is a beautiful, expressive, balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. Blackberry, black cherry, and blueberry, characters come together with nice weight and pretty notes of vanilla bean. Hints of cinnamon stick, dark earth, and pine sap add depth and complexity to a proper amount of fruit. This wine has an extra-silky texture on the palate, with refined tannins. The continuity from the nose to the mouth and all the way through the long finish is exactly what we work so hard to create in all our wines. It has an ideal combination of acid, tannin, and structure for excellent aging potential.

Also available in magnum and 6L formats.

Wine Profile
Ratings
"This wine is pulled from vineyards across the Columbia Valley, including Heather Hill, Bacchus, Dionysus, Ciel du Cheval and Destiny Ridge. A nuanced wine with its rich, layered fruit flavors, dazzling sense of texture and lengthy finish. It's drinking beautifully but promises to have a long life in front of it in the cellar." Wine Enthusiast, 93 pts. "Bright ruby-red. Complex aromas of blueberry, blackberry, bitter chocolate, leather, licorice and violet reminded me a bit of top Mendoza Malbec. Suave and seamless in the mouth, with insinuating dark berry, licorice and spice flavors filling the mouth without showing any heaviness. Finishes dry and long, with fully integrated tannins. This fine-grained Cabernet is deceptively approachable now but should age gracefully.” Vinous, 92 points
