2018 Windrow Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Windrow Vineyard was the first commercial vineyard planted in the Walla Walla Valley in 1981. Proving to be ideal conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon, the site experiences hot days and cold nights, creating wines with vibrant intensity. Alluring aromatics pull you into the glass with notes of black licorice, cassis, and dried herbs de provence. The palate is full and rich with flavors of dark brandied cherries, new leather, and tobacco leaf with plush tannins. Outstanding in its youth, this Cabernet Sauvignon will age for years to come.
On average, the 2018 vintage was a warmer and drier growing season. The most notable climatic feature to the 2018 vintage, was our pleasantly dry and moderately warm harvest weather that continued into early November. This allowed us to pick based on ripe flavors and near-perfect natural acidity.
