The nose opens with ripe huckleberry, black currants, and blackberry jam, supported by a backdrop of fennel and basil. Balanced on the
palate with ripe tannins and well-integrated acidity. Finishes bright and clean with vibrant fruit. -Winemaker’s Notes
Jeb Dunnick (JD)
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Yakima Valley from Neufeld checks in as a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Cabernet Franc, all aged 22 months in just over 60% new French oak. It’s another inky colored 2015 that offers perfumed notes of incense, Asian spice, graphite, and licorice, with a core of plum and blueberry fruit. Rich, medium to full-bodied, perfumed and lifted, it has some charm to be sure.
