FULL DESCRIPTION

Red Mountain is known for having incredibly warm days and cool nights, with sand and loam soils which all in turn create some of Washington State's most intense Cabernet Sauvignon fruit.  The resulting berries grow only to the size of a small Blueberry and are loaded with dark pigment and wonderful tannin.  These qualities allow us to craft a wine of beautiful scale and structure.  This fruit is sort of like someone handing you a loaded gun.  With all of the strength it affords you could certainly do a lot of damage.  However, we in actuality take a very finessed and gentle approach in the winemaking phase.  The wine has a beautiful nose and great balance in the glass.  It will not overpower, but rather compliment, most any protein you pair it with.  It is also a wine you could certainly enjoy standalone.
