2016 Sheridan Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon


Winemaker's Notes

Sheridan Vineyard is located in the heart of the Yakima Valley AVA and we are very proud to be one of the few wineries able to access the great fruit from this particular vineyard.  This is our 7th release of this wine and we are continually impressed with the quality of fruit from Sheridan Vineyard, especially the Old Block from which this Reserve Cabernet is selected.  We harvested the fruit in early October with an average brix level of 25.2 with a tremendous balance of acidity and fruit.  PDM yeast was used in our pump-under fermenter with the wine completing 100% malolactic fermentation in French Oak barrels.  This wine was then aged for 36 months in 50% new French Oak barrels with the rest in neutral French Oak.

Tasting Notes

The 2016 vintage shows very complex aromatics of dried Bing cherry, blackberries, anise, and graphite with a hint of herbs and spice on the nose.  The palate has layered dense flavors of black currant, cherry and spice with a nice touch of minerality that completes that concentrated but delicate mouthfeel It is this nice balance of fine and complex tannins alongside a bright fruit intensity with a nice touch of minerality, oak, and a sturdy backbone of acidity that are the characteristics we love about the Sheridan Vineyard site and what we think sets it apart.
