Brand New Cabernet Sauvignon!

Inaugural Release and Really Really Good!

$49.99 per bottle – Would be $100 in Napa!

Available Today!

 

We have a great Cabernet Sauvignon to offer from Walla Walla Valley which spans Washington State and Oregon.  This is the first Oregon Cabernet I think we’ve ever carried!

In Napa Valley, this would be $100, but in Walla Walla, Oregon, it’s $49.99.  No expense has been spared, and this 2012 release only produced 95 cases of wine… just 1,140 bottles.  Our Allocation was five cases, and we have them available today!

If you’re looking for a high quality cabernet sauvignon

that your  oenophile friends likely haven’t tried, this is the wine!

When I visited Walla Walla 10 years ago, there wasn’t much of a presence for Cabernet in Oregon, and this wine changes all that.  The winemaking and management team have worked in Oregon’s wine industry for decades, and this wine has the stuff!  The 93 Point review from Doug Frost isn’t typical, but among the Master Somms out there, this means something, and now this winery is turning heads!

Tasting Notes:

It’s concentrated, but not over-extracted, honest and pretty incredible given the young age of the vines. The high percentage of cabernet franc and petit verdot add color and structure, which are both very present in this wine! It is aged for 24 months in French tight-grained barrels from the Allier, Troncais, and Nevers Forests of central France – 25-50% new.

93 Points –  Doug Frost – Master Sommelier and Master of Wine

Hanatoro Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley 2012 – This relies upon the north-facing Octave Vineyard in Walla Walla, a new and exciting site on the Oregon side of Walla Walla. It’s firm and dense with fruit: black cherries, plums and some sweet strawberry and raspberry elements too; cinnamon and allspice presage some barrel spices and tannins. But the winemaking stands aside; this is never over-extracted. The fruit is concentrated but never dehydrated; sweet blueberries offer a friendly conclusion.
