2008 Frederick Red Wine

Walla Walla Valley

This New World-styled Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend offers intense aromas of tobacco leaf and blackberry on the nose, with hints of rose petal and green peppercorn. The wine is dry, but with a creamy texture, and is soft and intense and packed with fine-grained tannins. The finish is full of vanilla and orange extract. This is a wine to cellar.
