WALLA WALLA VALLEY, WA

Cabernet bottle

2015 "Summit View Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon, $35

Summit View Vineyard sits at a Northeastern slope, 1200-ft. in elevation on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla Valley. Planted in 2009, 67 acres of six Cabernet Sauvignon clones grow in nutrient-rich Ellingford Silt Loam, atop a base of fractured basalt. The vineyard’s location provides excellent air movement, resulting in frost-free conditions to grow bold yet balanced Cabernet Sauvignon.

TASTING NOTES: Aromatics of mulberry, black cherry, and Asian spices give way to a palate of boysenberry delicately laced with sweet vanilla. The structure is focused and spicy with balanced acidity and soft tannins which lead to a lingering finish of black raspberry with a hint of chocolate. Accessible and showing well now but will develop and age gracefully over the next five years.

Cabernet bottle

2012 "Olson Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon, sold out

The 2012 Joleté is a well-structured, medium-weight Cabernet crafted entirely from the Wente Clone 7 grapes and aged in Burgundy oak barrels. This small-production wine was sourced near Healdsburg, CA, from a tiny 4-acre parcel on Dry Creek Valley’s esteemed Olson Vineyard.

TASTING NOTES: From California’s excellent 2012 vintage, the Joleté Olson Vineyard Cabernet offers aromatics of boysenberry preserves, cardamom and white chocolate. Up front, boysenberry, fig and dark chocolate coat the palate, giving way to caramel notes and a lingering finish of black cherries with a touch of molasses. This richly flavored, well-structured, medium-weight Cabernet is accessible now but will integrate and soften over the next 12-months, gaining nuance through 2020.
