Canvasback Red Mountain Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
- Washington State
- Red Wine
Home to some of Washington State’s most celebrated vineyards, Red Mountain is renowned for Cabernet Sauvignon. With ideal southwest-facing slopes and significant day and nighttime temperature swings, this small but highly prized area in Eastern Washington produces exceptional wines. Named for the Canvasback duck, which is native to the Pacific Flyway, this wine was crafted from grapes cultivated by some of Red Mountain’s finest growers. With Canvasback, our aim is to express and develop the depth, structure and sophistication that define wines from this young and exciting appellation. This beautifully aromatic wine begins with luxurious layers of ripe strawberry, damson plum, and grenadine, as well as spicy notes of cinnamon and clove. The palate is inviting and rich, offering energetic tannins that frame the brambly fruit, and oak-inspired accents of cocoa and graham cracker. Bright and supple, this juicy expression of Red Mountain Cabernet glides to a long, complex finish, with hints of earth and generous red berry flavors.
