Substance CS Powerline Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 Washington Red Wines 750 mL


“Coming from mostly 169 and 2 clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Powerline Vineyard offers a deep ruby color as well as complex notes of ripe black cherries, currants, leafy herbs, and tapenade. It’s rich, full-bodied, silky, and seamless, with fine, polished tannin and a great finish. Drink this complex, elegant, singular Cabernet over the coming decade or more” 94 pts, Jed Dunnuck

“(from a vineyard planted at 1,200 feet, or about 500 feet higher than The Rocks; these vines were picked in late October in 2015, which was actually earlier than usual): Bright medium ruby. Aromas of cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate. At once juicy and smooth, conveying a captivating light touch and surprising inner-mouth acidity and energy to its savory flavors of dark berries, dried oregano and pine nuts. This very silky wine saturates the mouth and builds on the aftertaste”- Vinous Media 91 pts,

“Powerline Vineyard: (100%) A 30-acre estate vineyard, located over 1200 feet elevation. Powerline Vineyard was planted in 2012 in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, just south of Walla Walla in the Walla Walla Valley AVA. The soils are well drained with cobblestone river rocks and underlying layers of sand and gravel deposits, allowing vines to develop very deep and strong roots. The cobblestone rock was brought down river from the Blue Mountains and deposited on top of the ancient river bed. The deep sand and silt below the stones bring a great purity to the grapes, while high elevations keep acids high, producing very well-balanced wines with remarkable complex characters. Vintage 2014 had an early spring and a wonderful, long summer with cool nights to help maintain great acidity in the grapes. Going into the Fall, temperatures cooled down quite a bit throughout the state, and we were able to hang the fruit for a long period of time before harvest. This combination allowed us to develop more complex flavors, while still maintaining the acidity to produce bright, focused wine” – The Winery
