SKU: 80703-1996-750-3A
  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    Bright deep ruby. Sappy, sweet aromas of crystallized black cherry, cassis, mocha and mint. Dense and firmly built, with sharply delineated cherry and black raspberry flavors framed by strong acidity. A solidly structured, firmly tannic cabernet that should age for many years.

    The medium to dark ruby-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon has a nose composed of blackberries, mint-covered chocolate, and fresh herbs. Intense, mouth-coating layers of red and black fruits are found in this powerful offering. Its sultry personality leads to a tannic, firm finish.

  • Gary Figgins, owner-winemaker of this oldest winery in the Walla Walla Valley, turned his winemaking hobby into a career in 1977 after years of amateur experimentation in is cellar. He is respected for being entirely self-educated in winemaking and having an obsessive attention to detail, going so far as to choose specific logs for his barrel staves years in advance. Despite his overwhelming success, total production of his Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, blends, and Riesling remains limited.
