2017 The Rookie - Guardian Cellars Winery and Tasting Room
This is Washington Cabernet in its purest sense. Elegant and full-bodied, this 100% Cab is sourced from some of Red Mountain’s most incredible vineyards – Quintessence, Obelisco and Klipsun. The Rookie features notes of vanilla, ripe dark cherry and hits of pumpkin pie spice and cigar on the nose. We aged this vintage for 20 months on 80% new French oak. “The Rookie” is fondly known around the winery as Jennifer’s favorite.
