Southern Slope Cabernet 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Black fruits and cassis dominate the nose of this intensely colored, dark-toned Cabernet Sauvignon. Accents of vanilla and bing cherry suggest lush fruits and spice. On the palate, the juicy expanse finds balance with supple textures and cozy tannins. The king of red varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, is also king of Washington State. In this northwest corner of the USA, Cabernet Sauvignon reliably makes wines that combine great varietal character and value. Washington State’s primary vineyard areas are at the same latitude as Bordeaux, France, the historic home of Cabernet Sauvignon. It shouldn’t really be any surprise that great Cabernet wine is made in both places. Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon makes deep, purple colored wines, with definitive dark-fruit and herbal varietal character. While they are appealing for that dark fruit in their youth, they have the structure to age remarkably in the bottle." -Winery
