96 points, Gold
Decanter, World Wine Awards
"Jammy blackcurrants and cherries, sweet vanilla and nutmeg, with really splendid aromas of beautiful black raspberries and cologne-like citrus notes. Gratifying ripeness in a svelte frame.”
Established in 2007, Double Canyon’s driving focus is crafting exceptional Washington Cabernet Sauvignon from great vineyard sites, anchored by our namesake Double Canyon Vineyard in Horse Heaven Hills. Named for two ravines that run through our estate property, Double Canyon wines reflect unique traits resulting from the region’s volcanic activity, ancient glacial deposits, desert soils and the persistent wind that blows off the Columbia River.
Our 2017 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of newly tilled forest earth and fresh blackberry accented by touches of sweet coffee and raspberry jam on toast. The palate leads with a dark and silky presence balanced by bright blueberry, providing a subtle, integrated sweetness. The wine evolves to a long, nuanced finish, showing apricot cobbler with hints of minerality.
