Who doesn't love a great Cab??? And we know that Winemaker Pam's Cabs rival some of the best Cabs made. Pam wanted the challenge of making the perfect 100% Washington Cabernet Sauvignon (which isn't easy because Cab is such a big, tannic grape that, by itself, can broach being bitter). We think she hit the jackpot with this wine - our very first Reserve Cabernet.
Our wine club members often have their hands in the wine making process....and two of our favorite members, the Williams', spent 3 hours tasting through 6 different French Oak barrels of our Quintessence Cab to help us choose the best barrels to make this wine. Pam's thoughts, "...we've been fortunate enough to have won awards with all our cabs. Now Adrice Wines is starting to find Washington's amazing Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards that, for us, are the best...and those grapes can stand alone to produce AMAZING full-bodied red wine." This wine is sure to be a winner as well. We could just sit and smell the violet bouquet all day. Enjoy a lush mouthfeel full of dried cherries and plum. In its second wave, welcome raspberries on the mid-palate that seriously stick around for days.
