The fruit was handpicked and sorted to remove any leaves that may have found their way into the bins. The tiny berries were removed from their stems and put into tanks. Once in tank they were pumped over twice daily for approximately seven days, or until the optimum color and flavor had been extracted, then pressed off to barrels. The wine spent approximately twenty-two months aging in small French, Hungarian and American oak barrels before being bottled. 2013 was a warm vintage in Washington and should produce some amazing wines in the years to come. Cabernet Sauvignon is a varietal that enjoys warmer weather so we are excited to share this wine with you. The color is reminiscent of bright red currant or garnet. Nice toasty oak notes, a mild earthiness, spicy heat and some dried fruit flavors are noticeable on the nose. The flavor profile starts off with a kind of crispy currant and sweet acid profile before giving way to some silky tannins. Overall this is a very smooth enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon.
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.
