Harris Estate Caseys Lakeview Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

The Cabernet Sauvignon Casey’s Lakeview is similarly inky bluish/purple to the rim. Tasting like blood, this wine is dense and rich with lots of chocolate, espresso, earth and spice. It is deep, full-bodied, and again, a masculine style of wine that needs at least 4-5 years of cellaring and should keep for 25 or more years.

Lakeview Vineyard is the winery’s mid-block vineyard planted to a combination of clone 6 & 337 Cabernet Sauvignon on 101-14 rootstock. Excellent drainage from the rocky and chalky soils plus plenty of sunlight throughout the day produces wines of bold character with mouth filling flavors.

Organic farming methods are used to produce this Cabernet Sauvignon Casey's Lakeview vineyard. Vines are 17 years old. Ageing in French oak barrels (85% new) for 20 months, then 12 months in bottle prior to release. Non-filtered.

"Darker tonalities of fruit along with distinctly savory undertones are two of the signatures in the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Casey's Lakeview Vineyard. Rich, ample and powerful, the Casey's Lakeview offers notable richness to fill out its broad-shouldered frame. Hints of lavender and mint add nuance in a virile Cabernet Sauvignon that needs at least a few years to fully come together. - Antonio Galloni"

Harris Estate Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Missiaens Hillside Vineyard 2013

A steep, rocky site with red volcanic soils results in our most structured and concentrated wine. Planted in 1998 using 110R rootstock and clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon our Hillside Vineyard produces wines as breathtaking as the views from its slopes. These tiny, dark blue berries ripen near the end of September thanks to cool afternoon temperatures allowing for increased hang time and developed flavors.


Reviews:

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Missiaen’s Hillside Vineyard represents a serious essence of Cabernet Sauvignon. It is almost painfully extracted and concentrated, but tannins are sweet, the wine enormously well-endowed, rather massive and somewhat old-school. This reminds me of how the old Mayacamas Cabernets tasted from 1968-1975: thick, super-dense bombs of massive fruit extract. This certainly possesses those characteristics. Forget it for at least 10 years and drink over the following 30 or more."

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #222, December 2015), 96+ pts

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Missiaen's Hillside Vineyard is the most powerful and structured of these wines. Beams of tannin set the framework as this powerful, intense Cabernet shows off its distinctive personality. The purity of the fruit here is simply remarkable. Rose petal, mint, red cherry and savory herbs add the closing layers of nuance. - Antonio Galloni"

Casir dos Santos Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

We choose a terroir along the side of Los Andes in Tupungato, Gualtallary to grow this complex Cabernet Sauvignon.
Aged in French oak barrels for 8 months in our cellar. Lovely deep red color, with ripe blackberry fruit. The spiciness of the nose is echoed on the palate and combines well with juicy red fruit flavors. Well integrated oak and fine tannins ensures a long and classic finish.

Coming from a sustainable 50-year old plot, grapes are crushed, destemmed and go through pre-fermentative maceration at 11ºC for 24 hours. Alcoholic fermentation in tanks. 4 weeks of maceration with must. Aged in French oak barrels for 8 months, Malolactic fermentation in contact with fine lees.


Review:

"Serious ripeness and structure as well as a good freshness for the vintage. An impressive Cabernet. The balance of generous tannins, fullish body and black cherry fruit is very convincing. Drink now or hold."

Winery: Obelisco Estate

The Obelisco Estate
It is the Red Mountain reputation for quality that brought Doug Long and his partners together to collaborate on a new winery and estate vineyard. This was the dream location to plant the dream vineyard Doug Long had always wanted to do. Doug not only brings extensive wine making, wine distribution and business experience to this venture, he has history too...

In 1971, Doug and his two brothers planted their first vineyard high above Napa Valley on a property their father had purchased years earlier without any idea that the property was perfect for grapes. Doug and his brothers figured it out quickly and with encouragement from nearby wine makers, they began their adventure. By 1980, their reputation for fine grapes was growing quickly and in 1981, they started their first winery called David Arthur that went on to be named "Winery of the Decade" by Spectator in the year 2000. The 1997 vintage scored 99 points.

Doug attempted to "retire" to Gig Harbor WA. After two years and a realization that his golfing and fishing skills weren't likely to improve, he got the "itch" to do something else. With the encouragement of his beautiful wife Betsy (the beauty is not debated, but the "encouragement" might be), he explored and found Red Mountain in Eastern Washington. By 2004, the vineyard site was purchased and planted. Doug was able to put his long time theory of intensely planted vines into action. It is one of the most intensely planted vineyards in the wine world.

The first vintage was 2007. The partners were not even sure if it would be bottled. The vines were still relatively young. After sampling from the barrels and realizing that there was something special, the first bottling took place. This first offering was named "Best Cabernet in the State over $20" by Seattle Magazine and also received the esteemed "Double Gold" from the Seattle Wine Awards. The Obelisco vineyard theory was now a reality.

In 2011, Doug Long bought out his partners and friends, to assume full ownership of Obelisco and continues to strive for the finest grapes in the world. His philosophy is "that no effort and no expense is too much in growing fine grapes... grapes are 95% of the quality of wine". His philosophy comes through in the wine.

The Obelisco Vineyards
The 30 acre vineyard, designed and planted for the sole purpose of producing intensely complex and rich Red Wines, is located on a southwest facing slope bathed in sunlight throughout long daylight hours. With cool nights and the moderating effect of the Yakima River below, their new Obelisco Estate vineyard is perfectly situated to grow world class grapes noted for their structure, acidity and intense varietal character.

The vineyard is one of the most intensively planted in the State of Washington, with grape production limited to four pounds per plant. This limited production per plant allows for very intense fruit concentrations. The hand picked, estate grown fruit is aged in new French and American oak and crafted into distinctive varietals which are later blended to enhance the flavors of each wine we produce.

Alain de la Treille Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Our Touraine Sauvignon blanc is crisp and refreshing, with rich, ripe lime and grapefruit aromas. Great elegance with mineral style and despite everything some kind of roundness.

Average age of the vines is 20 years old.

We produce a part of this cuvee with 12 hours skin maceration and another part from directly pressed grapes

Wine was slightly filtered before bottling to ensure wine will remain stable.

Ideal for the Aperitif , any cooked fish such as smoked and grilled salmon but also obviously with a Goat Cheese.
