Gramercy Cellars 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a wine that we have been dying to release. This may be a surprise, but we almost stopped making Cabernet to be a Rhone only winery. Greg didn’t feel that we understood Cabernet or that it had the same potential as Syrah in Washington. Instead of giving up, we doubled down and got to work. We re-assessed every vineyard, dropping a few and adding a couple, including one legendary vineyard that is over 40 years old. We spoke with great producers all over the world. We realized two things with this wine. First, we love the combination of Phinny Hill blended with Sagemoor Vineyard. Phinny gives structure, finesse and earth while Sagemoor contributes fruit, depth and power. Secondly, we love extended maceration on Cabernet, sometime leaving the wine in tank for 40 days or more. A combination of finesse and power. Red and black fruit. Cedar, gravel, smoke, vanilla and baking spices. Firm acidity and tannin, but elegant.
