McKinley Springs is a vineyard in the southern Horse Heaven Hills whose legacy stretches back to before World War II, when the patriarch of the Andrews family cleared thousands of acres of sagebrush to prepare the region for farming. The vineyard was first planted more than 30 years ago and is one of the most respected in Washington. This single-vineyard Cab from winemaker David Forsyth opens with aromas of thyme, tarragon, black pepper, boysenberry and dark chocolate. On the palate, it offers sensual flavors of plum, black currant, espresso, cocoa powder and exotic spices. It’s an elegant wine with modest tannins.
