This young Cabernet Sauvignon from Walla Walla Valley is starting to drink nicely now. Showing a nice mouthfeel and nice complexity, with some green notes, that show up as it opens up.
Needs time to open up properly. I gave it 90 minutes, but it might needs even longer.
Still young, but showing good potential. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. Really nice with the double cream Brie cheese with wild mushrooms.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged for 18 months in French oak barrels (35% new).
14.5% alcohol by volume.
