2018 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

We have been producing a Wahluke Slope Cabernet Sauvignon since our inaugural vintage in 2000.  The sweltering days, balanced with the reprieve of cool nights on the Wahluke Slope produced some of the smallest most concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon berries, with unparalleled structure and richness.

Tasting notes

Bright red fruit and fresh cherry round out the palate finishing with rich chocolate. 

Production notes

Pick decisions are based equally on grape juice chemistry (Brix/pH/TA), as well as flavor and physical maturity of the grapes. Harvested early in the morning, the hand-picked grapes are promptly delivered to the winery for immediate processing. Whole-cluster sorted to remove any material other than grapes (MOG), before being destemmed and lightly crushed into 1-ton fermenters. The must is allowed to rest for 24 hours before inoculation with a selected yeast strain. The must is gently punched-down twice daily to ensure proper phenolic extraction. When fermentation is nearly complete the free-run wine is pumped directly into a combination of French and American oak barrels (225L).  Barrel aged 22 months, followed by another year in bottle before release.
