The blend includes 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. The En Chamberlin Vineyard predictably shows a generous dose of the Cayuse funk, along with solid and deep flavors of earth, stem, herb and wild brambly fruits. It all comes together in a tight and spicy wine with more funk than Spanish character. Unique and precise, with lingering flavors.
