Second-generation grower Will Beightol oversees 90 acres of vineyard within one of the Northwest’s most fascinating viticultural areas. The large-scale production Cabernet Sauvignon produced by Double Canyon’s winemaking showcases the region and neighboring vineyards. This bottling casts the spotlight on the emerging potential of young Double Canyon Vineyard. Opulent work with 40% new French oak barrels allows for aromas of toast and vanilla caramel with black cherry, dark strawberry and blueberry. Cassis and Craisins flavors arrive early and lead into an age-worthy tannin structure of cherry skins, enhanced by the touch of Petit Verdot (7%). It’s capped by raspberry acidity, dried strawberries and a delicious blend of baking spice and dark chocolate. Next month, head winemaker Kate Michaud moves into Double Canyon’s new winemaking facility in West Richland, Wash. These wines are available in Seattle’s Pioneer Square at The Estates Wine Room, where they are poured along with two other Crimson brands – Walla Walla’s Seven Hills Winery and Archery Summit from Oregon’s Dundee Hills.
