Cabernet Sauvignon | Red Mountain |
Shaw, Quintessence and Obelisco Vineyards
This is the fame of Red Mountain. The varietal that put the small, humble AVA on the wine map. This is Cabernet Sauvignon! Savory herbal notes of mint and eucalyptus wrap around a gorgeous core of black cherry fruit that shout structure, balance and elegance. A stunning glass with a freshness to make it brilliant for today and develop beautifully in your cellar. Old world inspiration, pure Washington wine in the bottle. 60% New French Oak.
19+/20 POINTS, RAND SEALEY
This is an exemplary Red Mountain 100% Cabernet. From the Shaw, Quintessence and Obelisco vineyards, it exhibits a semi opaque ruby color and an intoxicating nose of wild blackberries, black cherries, black plums, black roses, pipe tobacco, cedar, sandalwood, juniper berries, anise, eucalyptus and smoldering incense. The flavors are fleshy and accessible yet authoritative with dark fruits that are intermixed with black licorice, dark cacao, extra dark roast coffee and Red Mountain scorched earth. The concentration continues on the back with macerated berries, roasted walnuts, mocha, kirsch, integrated toasty oak (60% new French) and ground charcoal, all leading seamlessly into a firm yet sweetish fine grained tannin finish.
Heads up! Insiders save between 10% to 25% on each order.
