The Artist Series Cabernet is sourced from some of the finest Cabernet vineyards in Washington State. In 2012 we began a barrel fermentation experiment for it; and today, this wine is 100% barrel fermented and before being aged in 100% new French oak for 30 months.
The 2012 vintage is considered by many to be one of the best vintages in Washington history. The Artist Series Cabernet from this vintage might be our most unique. Here we chose our favorite barrel from each of the five Cabernet vineyards we sourced from: StoneTree, Dineen, Klipsun, Pepper Bridge and Discovery vineyards. The result is a classic Cabernet with aromas of cassis, dark fruits and wood spice, followed by a smooth tannin on the finish.
