Welcome to our second vintage of Washington Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. This year we threw in a scosche of Petit Verdot for color and aroma. Upon presentation, you'll pick up a nose of red fruits, blueberries, and vanilla from the French Oak Barrels. The palate pleases with black fruits of cherry, fig, blackberry and currant. Let a little air pass over your palate and you can pick up cocoa nibs and a little leather. Its naturally high tannins will allow Riveter Red to age well for 5-10 years, but is totally drinkable today. Expect a long finish, full mouthfeel and beautiful, strong legs like the Riveter Women had back in the day. We recommend aerating for 30 minutes or more to really open this wine up. The classic food pairing with Cabernet is lamb, but it goes well with almost any meat—beef, pork, venison, even rabbit.
