    GROWING SEASON:
    The 2015 vintage was one of the warmest growing seasons on record
    in Washington.
    Warm temperatures continued through the spring and summer, moderating slightly into fall and extending an early harvest.
    Overall, 2015 saw very favorable growing conditions, producing optimal ripening across varieties and yielding outstanding wines throughout the region.

    VINEYARDS:
    The Horse Heaven Hills vineyards are located in Eastern Washington.
    This region is mostly dry with less precipitation due to the rain shadow effect from the surrounding Cascade Mountain range.
    The terrain consists of south-facing slopes that provide excellent sun exposure for grape ripening, and protection from cold airflow during the winter months.
    Strong wind patterns in the Horse Heaven Hills reduce canopy size and density and contribute to even ripening by moderating temperature extremes.

    VINIFICATION:
    Grapes were crushed and then fermented 6-10 days on the skins.
    Malolactic fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels. Blending occurred immediately after fermentation.
    The majority of the wine (88%) aged for 9 months in a combination of new and older French and American oak barrels, while a small percentage of the wine (12%) aged in stainless steel tanks.

    TASTING NOTES:
    This bold Cabernet opens with flavors of black cherries and blackberries with a touch of currants and vanilla, complemented by earth and mineral notes. Deep berry flavors lead to a soft tannin cocoa finish. ~ Juan Muñoz Oca, Winemaker
