The first impression of this wine is one of intense bright red fruit, that is followed by gorgeous orange blossom notes.  The purple fruit flavors are concentrated on the front palate as it coats the entire mouth with a silky and textured mouthfeel. It finishes with notes of minerality and lively acidity.

Lady Hawk Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Horse Heaven Hills

This deeply purple wine combines a beautiful mix of black licorice, currants, mocha, and spice in the nose. In the mouth, a concentrated supple core of anise and black cherries leads into a textured and long-lasting finish which is framed by subtle tannins and bright acidity. Drink from now until 2035.

Vineyards & growing season

Lady Hawk and Champoux Vineyards are two of the finest vineyards that Washington State has to offer, and both clearly represent the uniqueness of the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. Lady Hawk, owned and operated by Judi and Paul Champoux, is a very small parcel of land with less than five acres planted, all of which is Cabernet Sauvignon. Luckily there are no other wineries that receive grapes from this meticulously managed vineyard, thus leading to a truly one of a kind wine. Champoux Vineyard, which is located adjacent to Lady Hawk, produces beautifully supple and complex wines, many of which have become the most famous and highest rated to come out of Washington State.

Over the course of the last four vintages, the Columbia Valley has seen a shift from two of this decade’s cooler vintages in 2010 and 2011 to the two warmest vintages of the last ten years in 2014 and 2015. In 2015, an early bud break was followed by warm temperatures that persisted through the summer and well into the fall. Harvest started earlier than most vintages and finished 10 days earlier than normal. This added warmth has helped create wines that are intensely aromatic with very concentrated flavors.

Stone Cairn Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Red Mountain

$40

750 ml

This beautiful violet colored wine is overflowing with cassis, black raspberry and chocolate notes. It is multilayered and textured with flavors that range from spice to mocha and dark fruit. The finish is long and brimming with the bright acidity and supple tannins that are indicative of Red Mountain. Enjoy this wine from now until 2033.

Vineyards & Growing Season

After a string of mostly moderate vintages, Washington State saw its warmest vintage in many years in 2015.  An early bud break was followed by warm July and August temperatures. Cooler September temperatures allowed grapes to hang in the vineyard longer and gain great complexity.  The heat also led to very small individual berries with immense structure and flavor.

Ciel du Cheval, Obelisco, and Quintessence Vineyards, all located in the Red Mountain AVA, are three of my favorites. These particular vineyards always express the terroir of Red Mountain especially well. The rich soils, dependable air drainage, and limited rainfall result in highly concentrated berries with dense skins, rich inky color, and daring complexity.

Ciel du Cheval

Quintessence

Lady Hawk

Obelisco

First planted in 1975, Ciel du Cheval is located in the heart of Red Mountain and grows some of the most sought after fruit in Washington State. The soil of loam on gravel beds, inhibits vigor which leads to small berries with intense concentration and flavor.

Sitting between 675 and 1025 feet elevation, Quintessence Vineyard receives incredible sun exposure along its southwest-facing slope. With a very strong focus on different clonal plantings, they are growing some of the most complex and unique Cabernet Sauvignon in Washington State.

Planted in 2002, Lady Hawk Vineyard sits in the southern section of the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. The 4.5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon grown at this sight are swept by the winds off the Columbia River, allowing longer hang time and more complex fruit.

Obelisco vineyard sits on the Red Mountain AVA and is known for its warm, dry sunny days and cool summer nights. The volcanic, rocky Red Mountain landscape was formed over 10,000 years ago with the Missoula Floods creating a new landscape with rich soil deposits over sand, silt and gravel.
