This 2013 vintage of Walla Walla Syrah is our best yet! With a dark bohemian garnet color there is a snappy and expressive nose of black pepper, nutmeg, blueberry and vanilla. The palate is wide, deep and dark with luscious fruit flavors of black cherry and blueberry, while being framed by peppery and earthy notes. Beautiful velvety tannins play equally well with ripe fruit and delicious earthy tones. All components contribute to a generous and lingering finish.
Moniker Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant wine showcasing three clones â€“ 4, 337 and 191 â€“ from Ukiah Valleyâ€™s finest southwestern exposed sites. From maceration to fermentation, we worked to preserve the wineâ€™s tannic backbone: cold soaking the grapes for two days, pumping over the cap, and briefly leaving some of the lots on the skins for greater extraction. We chose a Languedoc yeast strain prized for delivering optimum fore-mouth volume while retaining varietally correct flavors, then blended in a touch of Petite Sirah for power and Cabernet Franc for a lacing of tobacco. French oakâ€™s unique propensity to gather complex flavors over time harmonizes with the secondary tones this Cabernet Sauvignon will develop with age.
