2015 History Otis Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
This is the oldest planting of the varietal in Washington State. Otis Harlan planted the first six acres of cabernet sauvignon in 1957, located in a cooler site within the Yakima Valley. Otis Vineyard produces this elegant interpretation of the varietal. On the nose, the wine shows ripe plum, black currant, and spice. These characteristics carry through on the palate with a medium-weight body, chalky tannins, and bright acidity. This wine will age beautifully for years to come. The fruit experienced native fermentation before aging in French oak barrels for 18-months. Only 30% of the oak used was new, allowing the fruit from this unique site to shine.
