Tenor 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley (WA))

Cellar Selection

This wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon coming from Stillwater Creek Vineyard on the Royal Slope and Hedges Estate on Red Mountain. All free-run juice fermented in concrete and stainless steel, it features aromas lifted by notes of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, black raspberry, green pepper, cardamom, licorice, plum and scorched earth. The palate is rich and creamy in feel, showing impressive balance and length. Vanilla notes linger on the finish. It's a hedonistic offering of the variety. The oak shows a bit prominently at present. Give it some time to settle in. Best after 2022. Sean P. Sullivan
