2016 Three Rivers Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla
Silky cherry pie, cola and concentrated blackberry aromas invite you into our 2016 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is a mouthful of intensely rich dark fruit with just a hint of charcoal and wet stone on the finish.

2016 started out with above average temperatures reaching record heat in April. This jumpstarted our growing season and resulted in an earlier bloom than in 2015. Cooler June and July months slowed things down, allowing us to catch up in the vineyard. Temperatures heated up again in August and the grapes were harvested from September 21st through October 10th, 2016.
