This complex yet elegant vintage of “Old Vines” Cabernet Sauvignon shows sophistication and concentration that come from such extraordinary 40+ year-old vines. It expresses the purity of fully mature cabernet sauvignon that can only be achieved from old vine fruit. The color is a deep purple, and intermingling aromas of baking spice, cedar, graphite and ripe blackberries leap from the glass. Flavors of black fruits blend beautifully with pencil, cigar box and exotic spice of new French oak that coat the mouth. The texture is soft but firm with beautifully integrated tannins offering a rich, long finish. This wine will benefit greatly from additional cellaring and, with proper storage, should last for ten years or more.
Sagemoor Vineyard (Columbia Valley), Champoux Vineyard (Horse Heaven Hills) and Woodward Canyon Estate Vineyard (Walla Walla Valley).
