After warmer than average 2012 and 2013 vintages, 2014 in Eastern Washington was one of the warmest seasons in decades with favorable temperature conditions extending into fall. Overall, 2014 was a pleasant growing season; ripening was excellent for all varieties in all locations.
Fruit from each vineyard block was fermented and aged separately with blending occurring just weeks before bottling.
The wine aged for nearly 17 months in 69% new oak barrels, both French and American. Malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel.
This robust Cabernet shows concentrated aromas of black cherry with hints of mint and earth notes.
Rich, dense flavors of blackberry, currant and plum are joined by touches of licorice, while velvety tannins provide mouth-filling structure.
