D11 CABERNET SAUVIGNON
HEART OF THE HILL VINEYARD | 2014
DESCRIPTION Planted in 1985, Dionysus Block 11 Cabernet Sauvignon is really as good as it gets for old vine Cabernet Sauvignon in Washington State. We worked with this fruit for three years before releasing it as a standalone wine as part of the AERIALS Series, dialing in our approach. All along the fruit was top-notch. Each vineyard and each block - even different sites of the same clone - are wildly unique. This is Terroir. This being the case, it takes a lot of time, many trials and various iterations to make the best wine possible from each individual site. Finally, the wines we are creating from this site are everything we had hoped they would be.
Our D11 Cabernet Sauvignon has a character all its own. Dark fruit, crushed violets, and a big-time power all offset by elegant balance, flow across the palate. The texture is both silky and savory and is anchored by perfect acidity making the wine both opulent and age-worthy.
