Double Canyon Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon, Washington 2017 (750ml)
The 2017 vintage marks the first year that Double Canyon wines were produced entirely at their new state-of-the-art facility adjacent to Red Mountain. The 2017 growing season provided typical excellent growing conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. The Horse Heaven Hills experienced significant moisture accumulation in the early spring, and tapered off significantly as the season progressed, which provided perfect conditions for bloom and fruit set. Post veraison temperatures provided enough heat to encourage adequate sugar development. Ideal berry sizes resulted in excellent extraction, producing wines with great depth and concentration.
Characteristic of the appellation and the 2017 vintage, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of rich blackberry, pie crust and baking vanilla. The wine enters the palate with a silky raspberry profile accented by light notes of confectioners’ sugar. Hints of peach and raspberry take you into the finish, lingering with the juicy acidity that is characteristic of Horse Heaven Hills.
