Winemaker/grower Neil Glancey returned to this Glenns Ferry winery in 2012 after heading up the winemaking program for several years at Wood River Cellars. The now-defunct winery north of the town of Eagle included a 30-acre vineyard which today would be within the new Eagle Foothills American Viticultural Area, and Glancey used some of that fruit for this savory Cabernet Sauvignon crafted in an Old World style. It opens with an herbal aroma of bell pepper backed by plum and nutmeg. On the palate, it carries bright red fruit flavors of Chelan cherry, currant and cranberry that pick up notes of oregano. The lower alcohol profile and lighter tannin structure make this a natural for steak, pork and tomato-based dishes inside the Restaurant at Crossings Winery. This earned a silver medal at the 2015 Idaho Wine Competition.
Production: 200 cases
