2015 H/H Estates Big John Cabernet Sauvignon
Horse Heaven Hills AVA
This is a dark red wine that almost appears black. Amazing aromas of red and black fruits, plums, dark cherry mix with mild earth and oak tones. The flavor profile starts with Bing cherries, dark chocolate and oak. It just keeps going. Richness and structure combine to give depth and length to an amazing Cabernet. The finish is long and lingering with tannin notes and leather. True to the site and the Horse Heaven Hills the tannins have a unique dusty quality to them that adds complexity to the wine. This should age nicely for years to come.

Cabernet Sauvignon from the Horse Heaven Hills is one of the most sought-after varietals in Washington State. This is Coyote Canyon at its best. We sourced from 2 blocks on the vineyard, one planted in 2003 and the other in 2014. The blend shows a combination of youth and maturity. Fermenting the blocks separately to allow each lot to express itself and then blending the two together. We have been growing Cabernet Sauvignon since 1995 and our vines are starting to show extra complexity. A touch of Merlot was added to the final blend.
