2016 Readers Cabernet Sauvignon

A stunning Cabernet from Washington’s oldest and most revered vineyards. This is a follow up to our award winning 2015 Readers Cabernet Sauvignon, which made the coveted Top 100 List for Wine Spectator. A bold Cabernet with 18% Syrah added in for complexity. Dark and deep in color with aromatics of Cassis, red currant, dark berries, and walnut shell. Rich and open-textured on the palate, the wine has flavors of dark cherries, currants, and blackberries. Fine-grained tannins carry wine across your tongue and the vibrant acidity leaves a fresh finish to this great value.

Sourced from our favorite Columbia Valley vineyards, this wine has old vine fruit from ’87 and ’88 blocks of Conner Lee Vineyard, Dionysus Vineyards’ old block 18 as well as Elephant Mountain Vineyards’ high elevation block. Each brought its own element to the table and developed a powerful, rich wine. It offers massive value for all wine appreciators.

Wine Profile
Ratings
Louise Boutin, Wine Current 92 points. Don’t let the simple red label mislead you, this is a serious wine. Rich ripe fruit—82% cabernet sauvignon/18% Syrah—was sourced from Columbia Valley (95%) and Yakima Valley then aged 24 months in French oak. The nose is intense with ripe black fruit, green pepper, tobacco leaf, baking spice and briny black olive aromas. A cool stream of juicy black cherry, ripe blackberry and cassis flavours fill the palate until drying tannins join in, revealing dark chocolate character and layers of mixed spice and savoury dry herbs in the lasting enjoyable finish. This is an approachable, skilled-crafted full-bodied red with ageing potential but hard to resist now. Aeratedecant one hour prior to dinner and enjoy with rare prime rib or eggplant parmigiana.
