2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2018 Matthews Cabernet Sauvignon comes from several small vineyard parcels within three AVAs: Columbia Valley, Red Mountain, and Walla Walla Valley. Harvested by hand in the early morn- ing between September 5th - November 12th, 2018, each cluster was hand-sorted, berry-sorted, and then fermented in a combination of concrete and stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine was moved to French oak barrels for cellaring. After 40 individual eval- uations by our winemaking team, only 18 barrels were bottled in early October 2020.

Tasting Notes

Black currants, plum jam, vanilla, and cassis. With air, swirling brings dark baking spices mixed with dried Applewood and strawberry puree. The palate is fleshy with dark brooding fruits and a hint of crème brulee. Vibrant with firm structure, while maintaining a fresh and composed profile.
