100% Wallula Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, this first vintage from Den Hoed was held for almost a full nine years before its release. It shows its age with dried cherries and raisins accented by medicine cabinet notes. The palate is in full bloom with rich, rounded flavors and chalky tannins leading to a cranberry filled finish. For people interested in seeing what aged wine tastes like, they've done the work for you here.
