Ripening rarely is a challenge on the Wahluke Slope, yet Jones of Washington winemaker Victor Palencia shows restaint with this food-friendly Cabernet Sauvignon. It comes with a fruit-forward nose of black currant, dusty plums, thyme and sweet pipe tobacco. There’s a nice entry to the palate with cassis and cherry that leads to bright tannins, capped by a juicy mouth-filling finish of black tea and boysenberry.
