2012 Three Rivers Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla Valley
Double Gold Medal Winner - 2016 Seattle Wine Awards.
The Cabernet Sauvignons of Eastern Washington deliver the best of both worlds. They possess the ripe, berry-like flavors found in most New World Cabernets and the wonderful structure typical of Old World Cabs. Our 2012 Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon is full bodied with aromas and flavors of black cherry, cola, blueberry, and cedar. This wine has powerful big tannins and an underlying sweetness.
Food Pairing Notes
A perfect wine to enjoy paired with a tri-tip dinner or your favorite dessert.
