VINEYARD NOTES

Located in the far western end of Yakima Valley, Red Willow Vineyard was first planted to Cabernet Sauvignon in 1973. Mike Sauer and his family have tended this block and additional plantings to the highest level of quality. The fruit from this original planting was harvested in mid-October and yielded intensely flavored fruit with mouth-coating texture and beautifully balanced acidity. Once in the winery, only minimal and traditional handling practices were employed.

TASTING NOTES

A mouthful of dried red fruits, orange peel and a touch of plum is nicely en-hanced with a soft, supple palate delivering juicy, rich berry notes and dusty earth. Chewy tannins and a bit of vanilla aid in a lasting finish with complex layers of buttered toast, blackberry and cherry liqueur. This wine continues to change in the glass, so open it up and give it an hour before enjoying your first glass.

VINIFICATION

Aged 18 months in 50% new French oak barrels.
