Passing Time 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Red Mountain)

Cellar Selection

Klipsun Vineyard makes up just over half of this wine, with the rest coming from Red Mountain Vineyard along with a pinch of Cabernet Franc from Bacchus in the Columbia Valley. Beguiling but brooding aromas of coffee, flower, butter, spice, cherry and dried herb are followed by bountiful, penetrating, wound up fruit flavors, with a wall of tannins and acidity backing it up. There's a whole lot of stuffing in this wine. It's the least accessible of the 2017 releases and will require the most time to be appreciated. But there's plenty to appreciate. It also has the most upside. Best after 2028 with a good decade-plus of life beyond that. Sean P. Sullivan
