The Batchelor’s has aromas of red currant, black olive, wind blown silt, and anise.
Flavors mirror the aromas.
Les Collines is a classic Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon; red fruit, wind blown earth, and elegant tannins. Summit View is the new darling clone 191 (33), which has dark blue fruit and is a big tannic wine. The 2017 Batchelor’s has additions of Petit Verdot to smooth the mid-palette and Cabernet Franc to enhance the aromas and soften the tannins.
The Cabernet was aged in 33% new French Oak for 22 months.
