Puffin Cab Sauv


2013 Vintage: SILVER Medal, 2016 Savor NW Wine Competition

Puffin Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 delivers enticing aromas of dark fruit and herbs.  On the palate, this Cabernet is layered with fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry, combined with flavors of mint, sage and cedar. A beautiful, deep garnet color, Puffin Cab Sauv has firm tannins, hints of toasted spice, and a strong acid structure that indicates this wine is going to age nicely during the next 10 years as the acid, tannins and fruit integrate.

 All of the fruit for this delicious wine is from Spofford Station Vineyard in Walla Walla, WA.  This vineyard is known for its highly regarded Cabernet Sauvignon.

In the cellar, this Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 15 months in oak barrels. Approximately 67% of the oak barrels were French and 33% of the oak was American.
