June 2022 Wine of the Month
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most widely recognized wine grapes in the world. Its popularity among growers is due in large part to its ability to thrive in a variety of climates. The sunny and refreshing Washington weather and characteristic volcanic and stony soil are especially ideal to produce grapes that lead into complex and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon wines. The final blend was crafted adding 5% of Alicante Bouschet wine to balance the tannins and add complexity to the wine.
