Aromas of ripe blackberries, black current, savoury herb, and sweet ripe tobacco are highlighted by barrel spices of vanilla and mesquite. The ripe fruit flavors carry through in the palate with a light touch of acidity. Sleek tannins lead into powdery tannins on the finish.
The grapes for this wine come from our Estate Vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills. The fruit is exposed to long, hot, summer days with cool nights allowing uniform ripening, flavor development, bright acidity, and rich dark color. The Cabernet Sauvignon hails from Spice Cabinet, Cavalie, Eagle & Plow, and Big Tee Pee Vineyards. The Syrah from our Milt’s and Spice Cabinet vineyards and the Merlot from Spice Cabinet and Dead Canyon Vineyards.
