Lujon, Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Walla Walla Valley, Washington
Tasting Note: A Walla Walla, Washington Cabernet Sauvignon that abounds with supple black fruit that is the region’s style.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of raspberry puree, blackberry, black cherry, kirsch, strawberry, cranberry and clove-and-cinnamon baking spice.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied cabernet sauvignon has medium-plus-intensity, black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-acidity and ripe, medium-plus tannin.
The wine is slightly velvety in texture with some notes of complexity along the midpalate.
Pair with grilled meats like the New York strip I’m enjoying tonight.
Bottle Note: The grapes used to make this wine were hand-selected from vineyards in the Walla Walla appellation. Processed at the peak of maturity, this wine is handcrafted in small lots with attention to every detail. This process allows the wine to be savored by the most discriminating of palates. Enjoy! Winemaker – John Derthick.
