2018Cabernet Sauvignon

[Sold Out]

The 2018 Tenor Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from multiple vineyards across three separate AVAs in Washington State: Royal Slope, Red Mountain and Walla Walla. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were limited to one or two clusters per shoot for maximum concentration. They were hand-harvested over several early mornings throughout September and November, with the final pick on November 5th, 2018.

Upon arriving at the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted, berry-sorted, and fermented in stainless steel (74%) and concrete (26%). Using only the free-run wine, it was moved for 26 months of cellaring in 91% new French oak barrels. After many evaluations by our winemaking team, 11 barrels were selected and bottled, without fining or filtration, in February of 2021, resulting in only 266 cases.

Tasting Notes

Aromatics of deep cassis, mature raspberry, vanilla bean and sweet spice. A background of black currants, fresh blackberry, and black tea adds complexity. Swirling brings up a sweetness to the fruits while adding a dried strawberry note with powerful reservation. The palate is integrated and structured with remarkable acidity balancing the ripe black fruit. A pure Cabernet Sauvignon for those who celebrate this wonderful varietal.

Awards & Accolades

"Showing off a rich core, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon delivers cassis, anise and black cherry aromatics. The wine is texturally beautiful, offering ripe dark fruit flavors alongside a great veil of tension with salty undertones. Finishing very long, this is an outstanding effort with a long road ahead of it."
