Our first Yakima Valley Cabernet on its own from Dineen Vineyard has structure and acidity like that of an old world wine giving it extended length in the cellar. Grapes for this wine were raised in Catherine’s Block by owner Patrick Dineen and Vineyard Manager Patrick Rawn. The cool location brings out the rich dark berry notes you expect in a Cabernet coupled with well structured tannins that finish with hints of chocolate and spice. Violets emerge with decanting and time spent in air. Special thanks to the Two Pats!
