From: Walla Walla, Washington
Blend: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc
Critical Acclaim: “A blackberry-jam and cardamom one-two aromatic punch is a nice way to start things off. The spicy fruit combo is accompanied on the nose by traces of lime zest and bergamot. The wine, which was aged for 18 months in French oak, 36% of which is new, is beautifully balanced. Velvety tannins and bright acidity work with flavors like black cherries, raspberries, black pepper and a bit of bacon fat.” –Michael Alberty, Wine Enthusiast, 92 points
“…this is a vibrant, mouth-watering red bursting with red-berry fruit and bergamot. It resolves with a lively finish marked by cranberries and a hint of leather, the dusty tannins lingering nicely and calling out for food.” –Brian Freedman in his 2023 Food & Wine article, “41 Cabernet Sauvignons Worth Splurging On”
Pairing: This wine would pair beautifully with a range of foods; anything from a simple cheese spread to a mushroom or meatlovers pizza, juicy pork chops, steak frites (maybe with a dollop of blue cheese melted on top?), or short ribs braised in red wine. The kitchen at the Caprio Cellars tasting room serves a Beet Agrodolce alongside this wine.
