COLUMBIA VALLEY AVA
Traditionally “backward” in its youth, Cabernet Sauvignon (39%) drives the nose on the 2018 Doyenne, with savory rosemary and sage notes, before Syrah (61%) begins to show its influence with blue fruits and hints of vanilla. These two will swap and integrate with time in the bottle. On the palate, this integration is apparent even in the young wine, with blueberry, raspberry, and peppercorn flavors well-supported by Cabernet tannin and light oak toast.
