Cabernet Sauvignon, Yakima Valley 2013

Owen Roe

Our staff was pleasantly surprised by the upfront fruit aromas of this Yakima Valley Cabernet Sauvignon blend and feel that it is an approachable young wine, ready for enjoyment or for cellaring long-term. Lush floral aromas, pomegranite, red plums black pepper and baking spice give way to a silky palate with pomegranate, vanilla finishing with gripping tannins.

Reviews

  • "92 points. Sourced from five vineyards in Yakima Valley, this wine starts with rich aromas of wild blackberry preserves, black cherries, sage and red bell pepper all taking shape in the glass. This leads to beautifully ripe flavors of blackberry cobbler, black cherries, mocha and anise. The structure and intensity of this wine is outstanding as the finish lingers effortlessly. (Best 2016-2027)." (International Wine Report)
  • "90 points. Firm and chewy, with a sleek core of mint-accented black cherry and tarragon flavors, sliding into a long and distinctive finish. Best from 2018 through 2021." (Wine Spectator)
