2018 Double Canyon Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon
Located between the Columbia River and the Yakima Valley, Horse Heaven Hills is characterized by a dry desert landscape where strong winds blow continuously across the vineyards. Proximity to the river moderates temperatures and provides a consistent source of water to irrigate the vines in one of Washington’s warmest appellations. The area also experiences diurnal shifts between extended sunny, warm days and cool evenings. As a result, Cabernet Sauvignon from this region shows ripeness and depth while maintaining optimal natural acidity, making it some of the most sought-after fruit in Washington State.
lmpactful deep plum aromas with hints of raspberry jam and the feeling of fresh ocean spray open your mind to the tasting experience to ensue. The first entry to the pallet is silky smooth and opens with delicately assembled blackberry, plum, and peach cobbler, all supported by a dusty tannin structure which is complemented by a mouthwatering sensation approximately five seconds from the beginning of the experience. The finish is lengthy and subtle with hints of South American coffee and heath candies.
