The 2020 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is layered with deep black fruits and dark red fruits. This strong wine is balanced with acidity and tannins. Drink now, or age this beautiful wine for 7-10 years. 

Our 2020 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon displays layers of dense black fruit. Dark fruit flavors with a touch of sage lead to lingering flavors of dried cherries, black berries and a lip-smacking finish. Truly a terroir driven wine with dusty, refined tannins, this beast is big and brawny, yet beautifully balanced.

Winemaker Notes

The 2020 vintage presented a mild and uneventful winter. Spring was very wet and stormy which lead to increased soil moisture that in turn increased canopy growth. Summer temperatures were hot and dry which lead to consistent ripening. The temperatures started to wane in the beginning of September which allowed us to pick at optimal ripeness.

Vineyard Notes

Red Mountain is one of the smallest appellations in Washington State and one of the warmest with broad, southwest facing slopes near the Yakima River. Lacking in rainfall and soil nutrients, you would think this were an inhospitable area to grow anything. But grapes love this place and so do we. With plantings sprinkled around the AVA, Aquilini Vineyards has quickly developed its holdings on Red Mountain. The fruit from this site produces outstanding examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and is showing great potential. The predominant soil types of Red Mountain are Warden, Hezel and Scootenay which are a series of wind-blown loess. This variety of soil presents a combination of sand, silt and loam which are exceptional for growing grapes.
