2014 a2 Cabernet Sauvignon
The fabulous 2014 growing season at Destiny Ridge Vineyard is one of many fantastic vintages we’ve been blessed to have recently. Warm, consistent, temperatures during the day allowed the grapes to reach full maturity while the dramatic shift in temperature during the cool nights helped capture the vivid and expressive acidity which Washington wines are so well known for. This Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon showcases ever-present round and rich tannins, offering impressive aromatics of blueberry and dark fruits, with hints of vanilla and cedar. A wine with a multi-layered mouth from start to finish, suggesting flavors of dark cherry, black olive and hints of brown sugar that continues to gain depth and richness with time in the glass. The mid-palate is vivid on the tongue with excellent structure but gives way to a big, bold finish that promises better results than the 2016 election. Made to drink upon release, its balance and symmetry along with bold flavors ensure its bright future so don’t be afraid to let it lounge in the bottle for another 5 or 7 years in your cellar. Pairs well with good friends and good times, so grab a glass and enjoy.
