2012 Long Road Red
Horse Heaven Hills AVA
Long Road Red is the signature Cabernet Sauvignon in our line-up. The name is derived from our journey and commitment to make a wine that represents the beauty and complexity of this majestic old world grape. Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon is like no other. We are fortunate in our state to have great Cabernet grapes to choose from with diverse characteristics, highlighting areas the grapes are grown. The Long Road is well traveled.
The 2012 Long Road Red is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc from Alder Ridge Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. This wine was aged in 25% New French oak and 75% once used French oak barrels for 30 months.
The color of this wine is reminiscent of a royal throne covered in crushed velvet. Smells of ripe black cherry and warm plums compliment tastes of freshly picked blackberries with a savory subtle vanilla finish.
