2019 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2019 Matthews Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from several vineyards across four separate AVAs in Washington State: Red Mountain, Columbia Valley, Royal Slope and the Walla Walla Valley. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were limited to one or two clusters per shoot for maximum concentration. They were then hand-harvested in the early mornings of September 6th – October 20th, 2019. Upon arriving in the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted, berry-sorted, and then fermented in 54% concrete 46% stainless steel. Using only the free-run wine, it was then moved to custom French oak barrels for 22 months of cellaring with over 40 individual evaluations by our winemaking team. The resulting 26 barrels were bottled, without fining or filtration, producing only 591 cases.

Tasting Notes

Dried strawberry, black currants and dark cherries with winter spices and with a touch of vanilla. Swirling enhances dark fruits, ripe figs with a touch of caramel and star anise. The palate is well structured and balanced, silky tannins with a long bramble berries finish. Ageable to 2033 and beyond, with a bright and vibrant drinkability now.
