    Checking in as 100% Cabernet aged 20 months in 14% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Yakima Valley offers uber-ripe notes of crème de cassis, blackberry liqueur, melted licorice, chocolate, and graphite. While it puts its foot firmly on the ripeness pedal, it holds it together and is full-bodied, has a fruit loaded, opulent style, ripe tannins, and a great finish.

    Depth of fruit and intensity to this Cabernet with a beautiful core of ripe fruit that remains pure and fresh. Full-bodied and tight with very polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish.
