Cabernet Sauvignon: Gilbert Vineyard, Horse Heaven Hills AVA, WA
WINEMAKER NOTES: The 2015 harvest in California’s Sierra Foothills was stellar – one of the earliest on record – producing ripe, balanced grapes of exceptional quality. Likewise, this vintage in Washington state was the hottest to date, yet mild conditions near harvest left us with wines that exhibit both power and elegance. Named after the highest international pass through the Alps that connects France and Italy, this unique blend of Grenache, Sangiovese, and Cabernet Sauvignon combines the best of both French and Italian varieties. Equal parts Grenache and Sangiovese merge to form a deliciously ripe fruit bomb while a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure and balance.
