2015 Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon - Covington Cellars
Our Artist Series Cabernet is effort to highlight the amazing potential that Cabernet Sauvignon has in Washington State. Typically highlighting a single vineyard we give this wine extra attention and aging. In 2012 we began a barrel fermentation program for it and today the wine is 100% barrel fermented and aged in 100% new French oak for 36 months. 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot. The 2015 vintage is the second year of 100% Dineen Fruit and we're very excited about the Cabernet Sauvignon coming out of this vineyard. A cooler site it lends a classic and more restrained style to the wine. The result is a classic Cabernet with aromas of cassis, dark fruits and wood spice, followed by a smooth tannin on the finish.
