2010 Intuition Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
The "best of our best" Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot blend!
Night vision goggles are required to see through this massive inky wine. Layers of spice, vanilla, blackberry, black currant, earth and wine cellar engulf your nose. A huge explosion of juicy blackberry, cassis and current flirt wtih minerals and Wahluke scorched earth. The finish is lengthy and layered, building upon itself into a crescendo of dark berries and is a true representation of the vineyard it came from.
As mentioned, we see Washington State as the best of both worlds in terms of flavors reminiscent of both the old and the new world in terms of winemaking terminology. Big ripe and rich fruit marries every year with earth, minerals spice and terroir.
Nothing exemplifies this better than our highest end wine- which we most honestly named Intuition. Individual lots for this wine were cold soaked, saigne’d, fermented under controlled temperatures and post-macerated. Malolactic fermentation (secondary) was performed in 100% new French oak barrels- where aging took place for 30 months. Our intuitive journey of winemaking comes to fruition with this wine as you taste and feel the finest quality within this bottle. From our hands and hearts to yours!
