2016 Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine is showing great already, with blueberry, blackberry, red currants, mountain flowers, and pencil shavings on the nose.  The palate is a mix of dark blue fruits front the Pepper Bridge, with the more delicate red fruits from Seven Hills, with floral notes, pipe tobacco, and a hint of bee pollen.  Harmonious through the long finish, with a firm backbone that will aid in aging for 8-12 years. 

Blend: 

96% Cabernet Sauvignon 4% Merlot

56% Seven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Pepper Bridge Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Figgins Family Estate Merlot

Aging: 

Aged 20 months in 60% new French oak 

 

96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck 

"Moving to the three single appellation cuvées just bottled, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot raised in 60% new barrels. It offers a powerful bouquet of blackcurrants, plums, chocolate, leafy herbs, and damp earth that grows in intensity and stature with time in the glass. Deep, full-bodied, beautifully polished, and plush, it has remarkable purity of fruit as well as building underlying tannins. It's a rock star of a Washington Cabernet Sauvignon that has the class to drink beautifully today yet the class and balance to keep for two decades or more."
