Feather Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Columbia Valley, Washington, United StatesFeather is a Washington cabernet sauvignon made by noted California vintner and king of Howell Mountain, Randy Dunn. In 2015, Dunn faced a super warm year and you can feel some of that heat in this, big enough to soak up 90 percent new French oak. The colour is an opaque purple but when the fruit hits your palate it’s less weighty than you might expect. The tannins are dense but fine grained and the balance is amazing. Black currants, licorice, toasted oak and smoky, earthy, charcoal, espresso notes speak to its youth and ability to age for a decade or two. Excellent wine.Tasted: 03 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 94.99 private wine stores US 65.00 estimated retail AB 77.00 fine wine shops ON 85.00 Producer: Long Shadows VintnersDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
