2016 Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon

Sourced from the hilly terrain of Washington, our Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby in color and spice driven in aroma with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. A soft entry onto the palate leads to rich black cherry, black currant and dark chocolate flavors.

A vintage considered to be the longest in Washington history, the 2016 growing season granted a record-breaking grape harvest. This extended season allowed grapes to ripen slowly, preserving the freshness and elegance in our finished Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon. After the grapes were harvested, sorted and fermented, the wine was then aged in a mixture of 20% new French, 20% new American and 60% neutral oak for 18 months.

This sultry Cabernet Sauvignon pairs nicely with rosemary braised lamb shanks, filet mignon with a rich balsamic glaze or gnocchi with a creamy garlic and gorgonzola sauce.
