Cathedral Ridge, Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Columbia Valley, Washington
Tasting Note: Cabernet sauvignon is often overmanipulated with oak, but not this one.
Experience pure cabernet sauvignon fruit made by a winery that makes wine for the 70% of wine buyers from the winery who are women.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a nose of blackberry, black cherry, sage leaf, red plum and raspberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied cabernet sauvignon delivers flavors suggested on the nose buttressed by ripe, smooth, medium tannin.
The wine is indigenous-yeast fermented.
The tasting room is proudly managed by a 100% female tasting room and 4 out 5 wines are bought in the tasting room.
Definitely worth a visit with your mother, girlfriend or sister.
Bottle Note: Beautiful region. Beautiful wines. To embark on the journey of Cathedral Ridge Winery is to embrace the diversity of our region. Within 20 miles of our area, rainfall varies up to 60 inches per year, annual temperatures separate two growing regions, and the soils and slopes contort to micro-climates of earth and sky. Aged in barrel for 22 months, our cabernet sauvignon is our boldest and heaviest red wine. We harvest our cabernet sauvignon grapes when they have developed rich black cherry flavors and have attained deep tannins in the skin. The wine finishes with complexities of fruit, oak and tannin. 300 cases produced.
