2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon


2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon


Snipes Mountain Newhouse Vineyard


Wine Lore:

We are on a Cabernet Sauvignon kick, showcasing this 100% varietal Reserve wine from the Newhouse Vineyard in the Snipes Mountain AVA. Snipes Mountain is like an island standing out in the middle of the Yakima Valley near Sunnyside with unique topography and weather. Every year this site ripens early, hastened by the Snipes Conglomerate or shallow soil full of round stone from an ancient flood event. 

The wine presents layers and layers of aroma from aging over two years in new American oak barrels. The luscious toffee, coffee, butterscotch and anise notes mellow, as the plum and blackberry jam flavors come into focus. Coming from a warm site, the acidity is delicate, making the wine ex-tremely easy to drink now. For the finish savory bacon, va-nilla and roasted walnuts linger on your palate for what seems like minutes. I rarely make a 100% varietal wine, but this one is special. Enjoy! 

Alcohol: 14.5%
