Tasting Notes

This 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon has a reddish black center with crimson edges. It has aromas of just ripe blackberry and cassis with secondary notes of tobacco leaf and leather. There are flavors of plum and cassis, structured by hints of ground coffee, clove and anise. The wine has a fleshy mouthfeel and well integrated tannins, held together by pleasant acidity and a lengthy finish. Enjoyable now, and through 2030.

Vineyard Notes

North by Northwest was founded in 2005 by the King family with the vision to handcraft varietally pure wines from the finest vineyards in Walla Walla Valley and Columbia Valley AVAs, which straddle the border of Washington and Oregon. We partner with like-minded vineyard owners, with an eye on sustainable vineyard practices. Our guiding principle is simple: produce a quality wine, for wine lovers. Grapes for this wine were sourced from Les Collines Vineyard, Weinbau Vineyard, Alder Ridge Vineyard, Seven Hills Vineyard and Heather Hill Vineyard

Winemaker Notes

This wine was cold soaked for extraction, then punched down, and pumped over. For optimum flavor and body, the grapes underwent delestage, and saw an extended maceration. This wine saw 18 months in French and American oak barrels, 35% of which were new.
