2017 Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon



Classic Horse Heaven Hills nose of blueberry, crème de cassis, crushed violets, fresh herbs, and deep, dark Valrhona chocolate notes. The mouth feel is palate-staining and luxurious, with blueberry reduction, black currants, creamy cocoa tones, minerals, and fresh wildflowers. This looks to develop into another classic Cabernet from the Horse Heavens that will be drinking nicely young, but can last a couple of decades.

46% Discovery Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Champoux Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Klipsun Merlot, 5% Champoux Cabernet Franc

Aging: 80% new French oak

Production: 575 cases


95-97 Points by Jeb Dunnuck 

"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Horse Heaven Hills is a textbook wine from winemaker Chris Peterson and has beautiful purity in its black fruits, scorched earth, gravelly minerality and Graves-like (I wrote “Haut-Brion” in my notes) smoky fireplace aromas and flavors. Beautifully concentrated, medium to full-bodied, and textured, it’s going to show nicely in its youth yet evolve for 2-3 decades."
