The "best of our best" Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot blend!

New Release

Tasting notes

Midnight in the glass, a perfume of cedar and spice, dried black berry fills the senses. Smooth tannins swirl with black fruit and cocoa at the beginning. Deep lingering flavors of blackberry, cassis and currant mingle with cedar, smoke and earth at the end. The parade of flavors finishes with plumb, chokecherry, layers of chocolate and a thought of tobacco.

Production notes

2011 will certainly go down in the history books! We didn’t harvest any grapes in September! We harvested reds as much as 2-3 weeks earlier than average. 2011 started with much cooler temperatures than normal and up until late summer we were still behind in terms of growing degree days. A late warm spell saved the season and brought the much needed ripening. We chose extended hang time which made for some incredible flavors without any unripe characters. Even the late ripening Cabernet Sauvignon made it through perfectly ripe and full of complex flavors. 2011 shows incredible –all the finished wines show very fine natural acidities and perfectly balanced fruit and spice characters with plenty of Washington terroir. 

Five barrels made!
