Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
“Sleek and inviting, pulsing with cherry, cinnamon and cream flavors that point through a layer of fine tannins into the long and expressive finish. Offers presence and finishes gracefully.”
Sleek and expressive, this is well-modulated and refined to show the ripe blackberry and cassis flavors elegantly, framed by flashes of caraway, dill and red peppercorn that glide together into a polished finish. -HS
Smooth and juicy with plum, cassis and spice; bright, tangy and long.
Quietly impressive, this is a classic style of Columbia Valley cabernet, with a leafy scent over dark violet aromas and cassis fruit. The flavors are deep and full bodied, while the wine’s energy propels the darker aspects into a suave, lasting finish. For a classic beef dish, like daube. -PC
Sleek, supple and appealing, with welcoming basil and sage accents around a polished core of cherry and spice flavors, lingering easily on the graceful finish. -HS
Dark ruby. Shows aromas of spicy dark
red fruit with herbal accents. A fruit forward wine that
promises a bit more than it delivers, finishing with dry tannins.
"Round and appealing for its ripe cherry and currant flavors and medium-weight frame, which lets this become expressive as the finish lingers." - Harvey Steiman, June 15 2009
On the nose, aromatics express themselves in toasty oak and bright, ripe Bing cherry. It is medium-bodied on the palate with well-rounded tannins and flavors of deep red fruit, all spice, and white pepper. The finish is long and supple with notes of cigar box and tanned leather.
