2017 MCM Illumina Cabernet Sauvignon – Yakima Valley
This is our first all Cabernet Sauvignon blend for our MCM label that showcases three wonderful vineyards in nearly equal parts. The beauty of our artisan winemaking model is that we are able to source from these stunning locations and create blends like this that combine the best of disparate vineyards, two warm and one cool. The structured tannins of Red Mountain show thru and the dark cherry from Dineen Vineyard will accent this full-bodied wine.
