Winemaker Notes: A rich, intense yet elegant wine with aromas of blackberry, smoke, and black pepper. The smooth palate has layers of blackberry, huckleberry, cassis, and dark chocolate. It’s big-bodied with nice tight tannins and a long finish. This is our first "Vineyard designate" Cabernet. The appellation is Horse Heaven Hills.
