About the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon from Les Collines vineyard

This is our second time producing wine from the Cabernet grapes from Les Collines vineyard in Walla Walla. In our fist vintage we used this cabernet prominently as the foundation of our 2009 Prima Nata, Equilibrium and Resolution blends. We held back just one barrel (25 cases) for single varietal bottling and entered it in just one wine competition, the Seattle Wine Awards in which it received the highest rating of Double Gold.

We’re pleased to have another vintage of this wine for 2011 and excited to share it for the first time with our friends. This time we bought more grapes! So although we still used this cabernet in our blends, we saved twice as much to bottle by itself to showcase this deep, earthy cabernet from one of the premier vineyards in Walla Walla.
