We craft our Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to highlight concentrated Washington red fruit in an accessible style. One of the warmest seasons in decades, 2014 in eastern Washington was ideal for growing Cabernet grapes. This is an inviting red wine with plenty of complexity and structure with silky tannins. It’s also very versatile with food.
This is the shiraz-dominant blend from Henschke at 60% – with 26% grenache, 7% mataro and 7% viognier. It shows plenty of bright red berries in addition to darker berry-fruit aromas lightened by grenache and spiced up by the other three grape varieties. There's a very crunchy palate with loads of fleshy fruit and a wealth of ripe tannins cosseted in flesh and neatly balanced. This is a truly beautiful regional blend.
Supple, elegant mouth feel. Blackberry with lighter red fruits such as red currant and plum. Some spicy notes of fruit on the palate.
Vibrant aromas of cherry fruit, star anise hints of violet and nutmeg all unfold to reveal an impressive array of underlying fruit flavours. A polished, succulent dark fruits layer of plum, black olive, earth, licorice and Asian spice. These complex yet elegant flavours are all neatly interwoven with a perfect balance of acidity and supple, silky tannins.
