2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

Walla Walla Valley

Winemaker Notes

Our 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon starts with inviting aromas of dark fruit, ripe currant, spice, dried herb, crushed rock, cedar, and loamy earth. This beautifully crafted wine combines power with finesse, serving up layers of dense blackberry, ripe plum, mineral, mocha, graphite and chocolate flavors that are full-throttled and focused, with a churning base of smooth tannins which yield a wonderfully elegant and persistent finish.

The 2012 Vintage

Spring brought us more precipitation than usual, followed by a hot, dry summer. We experienced plenty of warm days without it being overly hot. Since WSU began recording heat units, the 2012 vintage was right on track with a “perfect average.” The wines of this vintage show beautiful characteristics of fruit ripeness while remaining elegant and balanced.
