Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
There might be no more perfect combination of site and variety in Washington than Cabernet Sauvignon and Red Mountain. Known for producing dense, assertive and savoury examples of the grape, we’ve always found something special in what happens in dense plantings of Scott Williams’ Kiona Vineyards: a unique combination of powerful richness so characteristic of the AVA, but with a textural silkiness and freshness unique to the plantings there.
Our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Kiona Vineyard and Red Mountain’s characteristic darkness is evident from the moment it goes in the glass. Aged in 100% new French oak, it’s chock full of blackcurrants, graphite, lead pencil and crushed rocks. The palate is decadent and fresh, full and silky. While possessing terrific structure, the tannin is ultra-fine, making a seamless and lengthy finish that emphasizes dry herbs, fresh berry fruit and mouthwatering minerality.
