Tasting notes

This wine has a complex cornucopia of toasted French oak, marionberry, vanilla, coriander and Malabar peppercorn on the nose with underpinnings of perfectly cured meat. The palate is full of ripe dates, plums, black raspberries and caramelized sugar. Pure velvet mouthfeel with a grippy finish that lets you know this wine is not for the timid.

Production notes

All Watermill wines are hand picked late in seasons for maximum ripeness. They are then gently pressed in small volumes and undergo inoculated fermentation in 1 to 1.5 ton small lot fermenters. The wine sits on the skins for more than two weeks where it undergoes additional maceration through punch downs and pump overs for color and tannin integration before being transferred to barrel. All reds age for between 12 and 16 months in a combination of new and neutral medium toast French and American oak before bottling.

Other notes

A premier wine for Watermill and a showcase for the quality of Bordeaux varietals in the Walla Walla Valley. Watermill Cabernet Sauvignon is a proprietary blend of fruit from Watermills estate vineyards which is aged in the finest French oak for a period of 16 months. This is our flagship distribution wine and one that will cellar for 15 years or more.
