Tastings.com – 91 Points
VINEYARD NOTES: For more than twenty centuries, torrential floodwaters from melting ice-age glaciers sculpted eastern Washington's Columbia Valley, leaving in their wake deep deposits of sandy, rocky, alluvial soils. Today, framing the Columbia River, broad plains of ancient sediment constitutes one of the world's finest wine grape growing regions.
TASTING NOTES: This Cabernet is delicious with flavors of black cherry flambé, mocha, mushroom, and plum. The finish is subtle and elegant, complex and concentrated.
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRINGS: Braised meats such as short ribs and ossobuco, crab cioppino, Muscovy duck with a dried cherry reduction sauce.
Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot
Appellation: Columbia Valley, WA
Winemaker: Bob Stashak
