Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
This vintage was a true testament to the strength of our estate sites. On October 9th a fall frost event wiped out most of Eastern Washington, yet our estate blocks that were still on the vine were in absolutely perfect condition. Deep ruby in color with sexy aromatics. Sandalwood, fresh cherry, undertones of vanilla and pencil shavings are framed by plum and underlying hints of tobacco. The wine is elegant with fine grained tannins but does not sacrifice on full bodied richness - absolutely drinking well now but will age through 2041.
Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec
Aromas of cassis, bark and rosemary. Medium-to full-bodied with silky tannins. Clean and clear ripe fruit with dried herbs on the palate. Straightforward and well made. 87% cabernet sauvignon, 6% merlot, 4% petit verdot and 3% malbec. - 91pts James Suckling
