Notes from the Winemaker:
“We craft our Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to highlight concentrated Washington red fruit in an accessible style. This is an inviting Cab with plenty of complexity and structure with silky tannins. It’s also very versatile with food. I like this wine with beef tenderloin and pasta.”

• Gentle pumpovers during fermentation were used to extract color and flavor and produce soft, supple tannins.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points & Best Buy - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"The aromas offer notes of boysenberry, herb and barrel spices, with the Syrah blended in (11%) showing itself. The blue and black fruit flavors are lush and fruit forward, with soft tannins, a silky mouthfeel and a sustained sense of balance. It drinks best at a cool 62 degrees." - Sean P. Sullivan (11/1/2015)

90 Points & "Smart Buys" - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Fresh and expressive, deftly balanced and juicy, with raspberry and cherry flavors supported by hints of cinnamon and pepper. The finish persists against nubby tannins. Drink now through 2020. 326,000 cases made." – HS (Nov 15, 2015)
