This Vashon Island winery produced about 40 percent less of this Cab from Dineen Vineyard than it did from the prior vintage, and that’s a shame. Its aromas create thoughts of black plums, dark cherry, brown sugar and complex spices. There’s a boldness to the entry of cassis, plum juice and pomegranate, which leads to a midpalate of allspice and pepper. Fine-grained tannins akin to plum skin and well-handled acidity give this extension. This wine earned a gold medal at the 2014 Capital Food and Wine Festival Wine Competition.
