Double Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||United States, Washington, Horse Heaven Hills|
The keenly priced 2015 Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon burst from the glass with a dramatic bouquet of ripe cherries, sweet berry liqueur and loamy soil. On the palate, it's medium-bodied and generous, with an ample core of ripe fruit, good balancing acids and ripe but youthfully chewy tannins. Open-knit and built for near-term consumption (it's bottled under Diam 10), it's a demonstrative Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend which seems sure to be a commercial hit.
Tightly wound and well-focused, with black cherry and mocha aromas and firm, layered currant and olive flavors that finish with big but refined tannins. Best after 2018. 20,000 cases made.
Light aromas of baking spice and herb are at the fore. The palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied, bringing a sense of freshness and vibrancy.
