Winemaker Notes: "Depth and layer upon layer, black cassis, dark cherry, tobacco leaf and morels. Then, pushes on to a full palate, that is savory, mineral driven and earthbound. Smooth, long, compelling… in a word: harmonious."
Winemaker Notes - If you like Cabernet dark and rich, this is your sexy beast. Chocolate, dark cherries, tobacco leaf. It continues with earth and stone on an infinite finish. 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot
Tasting Notes: “This bold style Cabernet Sauvignon displays great complexity and structure. There are aromas of dark berry fruits and plum on the nose with chocolate and vanilla on the palate. This wine pairs well with beef tenderloin or hearty pasta.”
Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested from vineyards located predominantly on the Horse Heaven Hills (which contributes texture and body) and the Wahluke Slope (for aromatics and complexity.)
Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc
WE90 Pts. - Tasting Notes - The Indian Wells Cabernet is our warm climate ripe, jammy “New World” style of Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine typifies the Wahluke Slope region with dark fruit aromas and flavors. Syrah added an enhanced richness and concentration to the wine. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah 10%. 14.5% ABV.
Wine Spectator 91 Points - We are a small producer of highly intense wine based in Oregon's storied Willamette Valley wine country. Our fruit comes from the best vineyards in multiple growing regions. We spare no expense or effort in the pursuit of great wine. Not for the faint of palette...
WA 94 WE 93 Vinous 92 WS 90 - "Aromas of black currants, dried fruit, and cherry, blend with subtle notes of anise, spice and cocoa. Tannins are rich and refined on the finish, a characteristic of Red Mountain fruit, with flavors of berries, black fruit, and cocoa."
In the tradition of the classic French Rosés, ours is delicate and refreshing, pale in color, and bone-dry. Primarily Cabernet Franc, with small amounts of Petit Verdot for additional structure and Malbec for expressive fruitfulness, this wine exhibits flavors of peach, grapefruit, and papaya along with fresh herbs, white flowers, and a hint of spice.
