Deluge 2015 - Glacial Lake Missoula Wine Co
In 2015 we sourced Cabernet Sauvignon, from a vineyard new to us - Wickersham Vineyard, in the highlands just west of the city of Yakima. The grapes, harvested in late September, at 25 degrees brix, were superb - and we ended up making our best wine ever. I also believe that 2015 will be considered the best vintage of this decade. This vintage has the highest amount of total phenolics, of any wine that we’ve made: 100 AU. Our previous best was 76AU for our 2003 Deluge. The wine was aged 14 months in new French oak hogsheads. It is massive, overflowing with black fruit, cassis, mouth-filling astringency, and zazzy acidity.
