We are proud and excited to introduce our second vintage of this powerhouse
 Cabernet Sauvignon. We created this naturally grown, handcrafted wine with talented, acclaimed Yakima winemaker Justin Neufeld. It is a luscious blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc from DuBrul Vineyard in the majestic Yakima Valley. Meticulous fermentation in small batches, extended cold maceration, and hand punch downs have ensured the full potential and genuine expression of this Cabernet Sauvignon. 22 months of aging in Boutes, Sylvain & Taransaud French Oak barrels complete this masterpiece.

Full bodied and plush with complexity and elegance, this wine shows a great harmony of acid and ripe tannin. It is perfectly balanced, displaying wonderful breadth and weight with no gaps when transitioning from the mid palate to finish. Pair this wine with steaks or aged cheeses like Roquefort, Gorgonzola or Papillon. This wine is tasting great now but will easily cellar for 10 years, but can you wait that long? Prime flavor expression will be achieved by decanting this powerful wine for 30 minutes before serving.

3.5 stars. Decanted, then enjoyed with appetizers. Nose is sparkling, with peppers, saddle leather, plum, and blueberry. Palate is a little heavy on tannins, even after decanting. A little cotton mouth. Suggest leaving this in the cellar. Fruit on the palate is more subtle, with dark blue and purple fruits and baking spices. Suspect will open up in a few years to match the nose.
