Novelty Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2017
Region: Columbia Valley, Washington
This full-bodied, aromatic Cabernet Sauvignon offers expressive layers of ripe plum, black currant and wild blackberries. A textured, mouth-filling wine true to its varietal character with a balanced, refined finish.
Like previous vintages of this wine, winemaker Mike Januik relies on Novelty Hill’s estate vineyard Stillwater Creek on the Royal Slope of the Frenchman Hills to build the base for the wine, then blends in layered complexity by using grapes from a small selection of top Red Mountain and Wahluke Slope sites to further enhance flavors and mouthfeel.
Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 2% Malbec
