2012 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!
Bottled on 7/27/14; 100 cases produced; Alcohol: 13.95%; pH 3.56, TA 5.95 g/L.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon (Dineen Vineyard)
