Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State opens with a black olive and black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, fruit forward and savory. The flavor profile is a rich black tea and blackberry blend with notes of olive, black raspberry, minerality and oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are well-managed. This Cab is food friendly and would pair well with home-made meatloaf. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Cabernet embodies an enticing array of ripe red and black plum, intermixed with notes of fresh red cherry. Characteristic of the appellation and 2014 vintage, the nose offers spiced potpourri with a touch of raspberry preserves. The addition of Syrah leads to a full and rich texture on the mid-palate, further accented by bright acidity from the Petit Verdot, sweet red fruit from the Merlot and luscious blackberry notes supplied by the Malbec. The soft and supple mouthfeel is supported by the complexity of sweet oak tannins and fresh fruit character, finishing with the juicy acidity that is characteristic of Horse Heaven Hills.
