2017Reserve Cuvée

Sold Out

The 2017 Matthews Reserve Cuvee was crafted from several small vineyard parcels across two separate AVAs in Washington State: Columbia Valley and Red Mountain. Merlot-dominant, with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon blended in. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were limited to one cluster per shoot or three clusters per spur to create maximum concentration in each cluster. They were hand-harvested in the early morning between September 8th – November 1st, 2017.
