DiStefano Cabernet Sauvignon (Woodinville, WA Winery) 2018 Horse Heaven Hills
DiStefano Cabernet Sauvignon (Woodinville, WA Winery)
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
According to the winery, this wine has been the “Proud Mary” of the DiStefano Winery since its inception in 1992. It has always been our goal to produce wines that are true to varietal character and the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon will never be the exception.
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon has a smooth, briary almost dusty nose marked with blackberries, black cherries, raspberries, cassis, and anise seed. Both red and dark fruits rise here for the picking! Ripe berries mingle with tobacco leaf, cedar, chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of violets. Integrated oak and firm, ripe tannins grip the palate and give way to a long chewy finish. The Cabernet Sauvignon is predominately from the Kiona Vineyards on Red Mountain. The vintage was cool and long allowing maximum flavors to develop while keeping meats – any BBQ will do! This mild-mannered red will stand up to sipping on its own around that 5-6Pm period in your life as well!
