2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

$58.00

Wine Club Price: $52.20

Deep and complex with a meaty nose of sandalwood, lilac, wind currant and raspberry, followed by a rich thought provoking palate bursting with huckleberry. Pliable tannins and a well maintained acidity linger long on the finish.

Our 2013 Hillside Cabernet reserve is a beautiful wine sourced from Hillside Vineyard near The Dalles, a city within the Columbia Valley AVA. This beautiful Reserve level Cabernet Sauvignon is deep and complex with a nose of sandalwood and red currants, followed by a palate of baked huckleberries and pliable tannins.

Throughout the history of Cathedral Ridge, our Cabernets have stood the test of time, aging gracefully in our cellar.  Herbaceous classic Cab notes are developed while maintaining the beautiful black fruit that makes them so bold and luscious. A favorite pairing for our Cabernet Reserve includes a Mac n’ Cheese done Becky’s way with White Cheddar and Gruyere. Or, use the recipe we include with purchase, Warm Brie with Wild Mushrooms and Walnut Oil.

Hillside Vineyards is located south of The Dalles, Oregon and is an absolutely beautiful setting. The vineyard is roughly shaped like a catchers mitt facing solar south with a moderate slope at the bottom and terraces at the top. We take full advantage of the dramatic microclimates within this vineyard. Hillside Vineyards is owned by Dennis Beeks and managed by Lonnie Wright who also owns The Pines Vineyard and Winery. Lonnie has long managed this vineyard for Dennis and we have been buying his beautiful fruit for 12 years. With a pH of 3.79 and a TA of 6.4, this wine has a perfectly balanced acidity and will cellar extremely well. The 2012 vintage was a small crop and yielded only five barrels. Three of which were used to make the very limited run of 75 cases of the Cabernet Reserve. The other two went to Rockstar Reserve.
