1999 Cabernet Sauvignon
Drink now through 2024
As a result of our years of extensive investment and hard work in expanding the acreage of our valley estate vineyards- Seven Hills and Mill Creek Upland Vineyards- our 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon is the first non-reserve Cab bottling to carry the Walla Walla Valley appellation, rather than the broader Columbia Valley appellation of years past. The payoff is very exciting, as our 1999 Cab is a broodingly dark wine with a wonderful nose of chocolate, mint, cassis, cola, and vanillin. The concentrated mouth feel is dominated by black fruits and the wines bright acidity and fine-grained tannins are in perfect balance, backed up with a tremendous finish.
proper Cellaring recommendations
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is made to age for 20 - 30 years in your cellar. Of course, there are some vintage-to-vintage variations to this recommendation. Wine should be stored horizontally at 55 - 57 degrees in a vibration and light free environment.
