The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon from Red Mountain is all varietal and spent 22 months in new French oak. Coming from a mix of the Sol Solare, Quintessence, Shaw, and Kina vineyards, its deep purple hue is followed by a beautifully balanced, medium to full-bodied Cabernet with lots of currant fruits, notes of lead pencil, violets, and damp earth, silky tannins, and a great finish. It doesn’t have the richness or concentration of the reserve, yet it’s better balanced. Drink this beauty over the coming 15 years or so. ... More details

Also blended with a splash of Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with dusty, dark blackberry essence with the rusticity of Red Mountain terroir. Full-bodied and weighted on the palate, the wine offers a balanced frame and some tight tannins that will loosen in time before. The wine ends with flavors of pencil shavings, cedar and plum reduction on the long, drawn-out finish. It's always good and constantly dependable.

A rather lean, gritty-textured cabernet with lots of iodine, blackberry and confer undertones. Full-bodied, tight and rich. Better in 2021. Drink or hold.

Bright medium ruby. Brooding, inky scents of cassis, blueberry, dark raspberry, licorice, dark chocolate, tobacco leaf and minerals; classic Cabernet Sauvignon! Suave, fine-grained and vibrant on entry, then dense but light on its feet in the middle palate, with lovely spicy/herbal lift to the broad, silky dark berry and cocoa powder flavors. Hints at the dusty minerality of Red Mountain. Delivers a sophisticated texture and sneaky depth. More savory than sweet in the early going and in need of patience. But the serious dusty tannins avoid hardness even today and the aftertaste is very subtle and long. If this doesn't show quite the vinosity or the high pitch of the outstanding 2016, this vintage is also superb.

The aromas are reticent initially, with notes of coffee, anise, dried herb, cherry and tar. The flavors are fleshy and straight down the fairway, with plenty of structure behind them. Give it time in the cellar to see it at its best. Drink after 2026. (Cellar Selection)

Savory and well-proportioned, with a fervent structure of tannin and acid, balanced by deep blackberry and green olive flavors. Drink now through 2029. 6,400 cases made.

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

By far and away the most recognized and widely grown red wine grape varietal in the world is the Cabernet Sauvignon. First cultivated in the 18th century in France, this wonderful cross of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc grapes has long since been the most important varietal for red wines across the globe. Now grown everywhere from its native France to the furthest reaches of the New World, Cabernet Sauvignon is adored and prized by wineries for its hardiness and resistance to rot, as well as its large and sharp flavors and wonderful capability for fine aging Indeed, many of the finest wines of history and the modern age would be simply unimaginable without Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, with the famed wineries of Bordeaux and other important regions using it as the primary grape in their oak aged produce. High tannin levels, acidity and powerful flavors are the characteristics most commonly associated with this varietal, however, when blended and slowly aged, it is capable of a world of flavors and aromas unmatched by any other grape.

Region: Washington State

Since it began in the 1820s, wine-production in Washington state has gone from strength to strength, with many of the finest United States wines coming out over the past twenty years hailing from this region. Today, the state is the second largest US producer of wines, behind California, with over forty thousand acres under vine. The state itself is split into two distinct wine regions, separated by the Cascade Range, which casts an important rain shadow over much of the area. As such, the vast majority of vines are grown and cultivated in the dry, arid desert-like area in the eastern half of the state, with the western half producing less than one percent of the state's wines where it is considerably wetter. Washington state is famed for producing many of the most accessible wines of the country, with Merlot and Chardonnay varietal grapes leading the way, and much experimentation with other varietals characterizing the state's produce in the twenty-first century.

Country: United States

The first European settlers to consider growing grapevines in the United States must have been delighted when they discovered the now famous wine regions within California, Oregon and elsewhere. Not even in the Old World are there such fertile valleys, made ideal for vine cultivation by the blazing sunshine, long, hot summers and oceanic breezes. As such, it comes as little surprise that today more than eighty-nine percent of United States wines are grown in the valleys and on the mountainsides of California, where arguably some of the finest produce in the world is found. However, American wine does not begin and end with California, and due to the vast size of the country and the incredible range of terrains and climates found within the United States, there is probably no other country on earth which produces such a massive diversity of wines. From ice wines in the northern states, to sparkling wines, aromatized wines, fortified wines, reds, whites, rosés and more, the United States has endless surprises in store for lovers of New World wines.
