2019 Double Canyon Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
lmpactful deep cherry aromas with hints of vanilla, dark chocolate and clove open your mind to the tasting experience to ensue. The first entry to the pallet is silky smooth, brimming with notes of ripe blackberry and tart currant, and finishes with toasted vanilla, oak, and baking spices. With approachable tannins, the finish is lengthy and subtle.
The wine was aged in 40% new oak, mostly French oak with a spattering of American oak for sweetness. It received 20 months of barrel time post-fermentation. This wine was filtered with a high-tech cross flow filtration technology for the cleanest and most stable resulting wine.
This wine is sourced from our hand-chosen vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills and Red Mountain appellations. Some of the factors that contribute to this high quality fruit are the windswept landscape, the soil deposited there by the Missoula floods, the high summer temperatures that can be reached and the high quality of the plant materials in these vineyards.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs nicely with hearty meat dishes such as roasted lamb with grilled asparagus or for a meatless pairing try it with eggplant parmesan.
This wine is our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon from Columbia Valley. The fruit is sourced from the prestigious Horse Heaven Hills and Red Mountain appellations. Warmer than other growing areas, the vineyards are cooled by persistent winds that comb across the desert landscape.
