2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

Walla Walla Valley

Winemaker Notes

Deliciously pure and supple, this wine is layered with seductive mocha and espresso laced oak wrapped around a dense core of currant, blackberry compote, licorice with hints of crushed rock, chocolate and tobacco leaf. The mouthfeel of this offering is showing dark plum, velvety raspberry notes with a long, persistent finish and a tremendous depth.

The 2014 Vintage

The summer of 2014 marked the warmest summer on record in the Walla Walla Valley. Spring was cool and dry, with bud break occurring right on time in mid-April. Once it started warming up, it didn't stop. It was actually so warm during the month of July that the vineyard shut down and pushed our picking date by 2 weeks, putting us back in line with our average harvest date in mid-September. Despite the amount of heat units we received, meticulous work in the vineyard and precise picking dates enabled us to remain consistent with our elegant and balanced style.

Tasting notes

  Cassis and framboise dominate the nose on this vintage. Exotic Moroccan spice leads to notes of black and blue fruit cobbler. Black currant is front and center on the palate, showing off the brightness of tart fruit with dark undertones, mingling with hints of eucalyptus. The harmonious combination of acidity and rich tannins give this wine a long finish that will stay with you long after you put down your glass.
