Tom and Cheryl Hodgins discovered hidden skylights when they began renovating the century-old Quinn Building in Walla Walla, and that beautiful unexpected feature inspired them to use that reference in their art gallery, vineyard and subsequent winery. The aromas of this recently released Cabernet Sauvignon from a classic vintage offer toasted cherry wood, dark plum, black currant, boysenberry and black licorice. On the pour, it opens with bold flavors of dusty cherry and dark purple fruit with a focus on pomegranate, which brings a good grip of tannin and a long trail of juicy acidity that’s capped by a sense of minerality. This earned a silver medal at both the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition and the 2016 Capital Wine and Food Festival Wine Awards, and the wine is available at the Walla Walla winery along Campbell Road, their satellite tasting room in Kirkland and Nectar Tasting Room in Spokane River.
