2018 Shaw Cabernet Sauvignon
RED MOUNTAIN AVA
Sourced entirely from a single block on Red Mountain, the 2018 Shaw Cabernet Sauvignon immediately flashes sensational dark fruit aromas of black currant and sweet cherries, with alluring barrel notes of vanilla and roasted coffee. Powerfully driven by intense and lingering blackberry fruit and exotic cedar notes, this vintage is lively and deep with extraordinarily well integrated wood. Primary and youthful, round tannins and a creamy texture add even more appeal.
Each year the Washington wine industry chooses an exemplary vintner and grower from amongst its peers. The 2015 honor went to Shaw Vineyards and DeLille Cellars, spanning more than 50 years of combined experience as vanguards of Washington's wine industry. To acknowledge this tribute, we selected some of our finest barrels of Shaw Vineyards Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon for a limited production wine exclusive to our wine club.
Located in the northwest corner of Red Mountain (known as the 'canyons' area), this sun-drenched vineyard grows in the steep, rocky slopes facing due west. Wines from here are bold and hedonistic with magnificent purity of fruit. Enjoy a glass as a classic example of the stellar wine lineage of Washington State.
