Beautiful aromas of black currants, cassis, plum jam, and toasty vanilla are followed by warm baking spices and strawberry purée with the introduction of air to the glass. The palate is dark and fleshy, with plush red fruits and a hint of vanilla bean. Vibrant mouthfeel with firm tannin structure, yet the wine maintains an elegant and nuanced profile. This is an example of how Washington State can make truly wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon.
