The complex nose of ripe black fruits, cedar, cigar box, coffee and chocolate is followed by impressive palate weight, substantial ripe tannin, laced perfectly with complimentary oak notes, and finishes with excellent length

Growing Conditions

2002 was a terrific vintage perhaps most notable for its incredible lack of precipitation. We had beautiful weather for bloom resulting in full, even clusters. We then had our last rain of the season shortly thereafter the second week of June. It then did not rain another drop until well after harvest. The weather throughout the growing season was wonderfully warm with only a few 100+ degree days. Fruit throughout varieties ripened completely and evenly. 2002 was a textbook year for Cabernet Sauvignon in Washington State.


Aged in new French and American oak barrels for 22 months.


Beautiful, saturated-to-rim color.
