2015 :Nota Bene Cabernet Sauvignon – Dineen Vineyard : Yakima Valley

This charming location near Zillah is quickly becoming our showcase vineyard of the Yakima Valley. 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. Bottled alone, it offers one a chance to explore the terroir of this site. Special thanks to the Two Pats!

From the same vineyard as the Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Dineen Vineyard is similarly colored and offers up a beautiful bouquet of crème de cassis, spicy oak, and crushed flowers. Elegant, medium to full-bodied, and nicely textured on the palate, it's a heck of a lot of Cabernet Sauvignon for not too much buck. Drink it any time over the coming decade or so. Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck

Dark ruby-red. Cassis, brown spices and a hint of herbs on the nose. A distinct step up in sweetness from the Cabernet Franc from Dineen Vineyard and more pristine as well, offering flavors of cassis and huckleberry and a more harmonious oak element. Finishes firm and subtly persistent, with lingering notes of dark berries and brown spices. (14% alcohol) Drink 2018 - 2023

All Cabernet from a site in the Yakima Valley, aged mostly in neutral barrels, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Dineen Vineyard is a classic, well-made Cabernet that has plenty of spiced red and black fruits, some tobacco and spicy oak, medium body, a rounded, nicely textured mouthfeel, and a great finish. It's a classic, impeccably put together Cabernet that will drink well for 10-12 years or more. Drink 2020-2032. – Jeb Dunnuck
