James Suckling Review
Rated 94
The first release of this wine, 80% sourced from Heart of the Hill Vineyard. There's a very plush and rich feel to this with attractive purple fruit that's delivered in supple and approachable mode. Holds the finish well. Really impressive. 98% cabernet sauvignon and 2% syrah. Drink or hold.

Wine Advocate Review
Rated 92+
With 2% Syrah blended in, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain features classic black fruit aromas that are rich and lush, with nots of soft oak spices and purple flowers. Medium to full-bodied, the Cabernet is youthfully tight and rigid in the mouth, with grippy, structured tannins and a complex, mineral-driven tension, showing exceptional quality. The finish is dusty, with a composed yet tight complexity that will age beautifully over the next decade. Drink now-2032.

Wine Spectator Review
Rated 92
Offers a pure beam of lively fruit detail and good structure with black cherry, toasty mocha and dried dill flavors that build toward broad-shouldered tannins. Drink now through 2025.

Wine Tasting Notes
We are pleased to introduce our new Red Mountain Cabernet to showcase one of Washington's warmest and most renown regions known for rich concentrated red wines. We crafted this Red Mountain Cab to highlight the ripe fruit characteristics and intense aromatics and focused tannins reflective of this very hot and dry region. Our wine offers aromas and flavors of black cherry, cardamom spice and dark chocolate with an elegant structure and refined tannins. We hope you enjoy this ultimate sense of place.
