Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Walla Walla Valley

WINEMAKER NOTES

An estate blend of three blocks from our Pheasant Run Vineyard. On the nose, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of brambleberries, currants, dark fruit and saddle leather notes. On the palate the wine builds upon the rich dark fruit and leathery notes with well-integrated oak and tannin and balanced acidity. The long generous finish hints at roasted espresso and caramelized sugar.
