Winemaker’s Notes: 🏆 Double Gold 95 Award Winner at Seattle Wine Awards. Our goal with this Cabernet has always been to capture the regal nature of the variety that they call the “King of Red Grapes”—purity of expression, youthful fruitiness, ageworthy structure, food-friendliness, and an undeniable sense of the place where it was grown. And in 2018, our winemaker Gary nailed all of those elusive Cabernet markers.
AWARDS: Double Gold 95 Cabernet Sauvignon (Seattle Wine Awards)
