More about this wine from Columbia Valley, Washington
California wine country mostly dominates what Americans think about when it comes to wine made right here in the USA. Maybe Oregon Pinot Noir gets the occasional press blurb. However, some of the country's best juice hails from the Evergreen state AKA Washington. The crew behind this delectable Cab got their start in 2001 with the driving force and an unwavering commitment to producing world-class wines in Washington. We'd say nearly 20 years of practice has made these guys one of our fave Cab producers in the States.

The nose is high-toned with aromas of pencil lead, dark plum, and fruity leather with a slight green herbaceousness the leads to plentiful dark fruit flavors. The sippin' is oh so lovely with raspberry fruit and side notes of black cherry and a deluxe finish of tobacco leaves. The juice is sleek and stylish and shows off serious craftsmanship that you'd think would be much more expensive vino.
