2008 Cabernet Sauvignon

No Longer Available

Tasting Notes

This full bodied wine is a perfect expression of our Horse Heaven AVA, a perfect pairing of soil, varietal and climate.  A rich nose of summer ripened blackberries, dried currants and cigar box.  A little chalky on the palate, this full bodied wine finishes richly with a deep earthy lingering finish imparted by the aging in French Oak Barrels. Aging capability:  8-10 years.

Winemakers Notes

The grapes were picked at perfect ripeness and full of flavor then sorted and crushed / de-stemmed.  Fermentation took place in small 1 ton bins and the wines were fermented to dryness.  The wine was aged predominantly in small French Oak Barrels.
