2010 Wahluke Slope
“Our Cabernet Sauvignon has intense fruit flavor, a delicate nose and beautiful color. These characteristics, combined with balanced tannins, make this wine a perfect match for full-flavored dishes”- Tasting notes - from our winemaker Doug Gore

The 2010 vintage was cooler than past vintages; bud break arrived on schedule in early April, but a cool, wet spring delayed flowering and reduced fruit set across many varieties. An unusually cool summer produced dramatic differences in ripening between warmer and cooler sites, with véraison extending into September in some cooler areas. However, naturally low yields, combined with over a month of consistently warm weather from late September through late October, produced ripeness and flavor development with extraordinary natural acidity.
The Wahluke Slope is nestled above the Columbia River in south-central Washington. With one of the warmest and driest climates in Washington state and sandy loam soil in the vineyards, the terroir in this historical region is perfect for creating big, bold wines with outstanding structure.
