2014 History Otis Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 750 mL
Planted by Otis Harlan in 1957, the Otis Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is the oldest planting of the varietal in Washington State. Located in a cooler section of the Yakima Valley, Otis Vineyard produces an elegant interpretation of the varietal.
On the nose, the wine shows black-raspberry, dried herb, red rose, pepper and earth. These characteristics carry through on the palate with a mid-weight body and perfect balance.
The 2014 vintage was a near-perfect growing season, with 3-tons of fruit harvested on October 30. The fruit experienced native fermentation before aging in French oak barrels for 18-months. Only 30% of the of the oak used was new, allowing the fruit from this special site to shine.
This wine will age beautifully for years to come.
