The Walla Walla Valley’s iconic schoolhouse works off a historic shopping list for one of the Northwest’s best examples of Cabernet Sauvignon vintage after vintage. Nearly a dozen sites, most of them in their third decade of life, include Alder Ridge, Bacchus and Dionysus at Sagemoor, Candy Mountain and Klipsun, StoneTree, and Walla Walla Valley plantings Pepper Bridge, Seven Hills, Ferguson, Summit View, Loess and Yellow Jacket. The blend creates aromas and flavors of dark purple fruit beyond the 22 months in a program of 25% new oak. Its theme of plum and blackberry are backed by blossoming blueberry skin tannins accompanied by pomegranate acidity and finished by toast and raspberry jam.
