Cabernet is very dark to the rim and has a complex aroma of cinnamon toast, red and black fruits, Christmas spices, nutmeg, coffee, and a hint of gun powder. Every time I go back to the glass I seem to find something new.


On the palate, it has very long, fine-grained, slightly chalky tannins, perfect acid balance, and a beautiful glycerin feeling that gives it tremendous length in its finish.

Growing Conditions

2007 in Washington is regarded by my winemaking peers and critics alike as a monumental vintage. It was just a perfect vintage from cover to cover, with tiny, intense berries waiting for us to coax them to greatness.


Aged 22 months in new and neutral French and American Oak.
