This Cabernet embodies a delectable mix of fresh ripe red and black plum, intermingled with hints of dried red cherry. Characteristic of the appellation and 2013 vintage, the nose presents spiced potpourri with the slightest hint of fresh sweet basil. The addition of Syrah leads to a full and rich texture on the mid-palate, further accented by luscious blackberry notes supplied by the Malbec and bright acidity from the Petit Verdot. The soft and supple mouthfeel is supported by the complexity of sweet oak tannins and fresh fruit character, finishing with the juicy acidity that is characteristic of Horse Heaven Hills.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine still appears to be in its shell, with aromas of plum, black fruit, spearmint and herb, along with a distinct green tinge that becomes more prominent over time. There's plushness to the fruit and herb flavors while it retains well-balanced acidity.
