The flagship wine by vintner Thomas Vogele remains Cabernet Sauvignon, and this latest release reflects the growth of his Wines by Luke brand and his connections to the Milbrandt brothers. Their vineyards – Clifton Hill, Ravencliff, Northridge, Wahluke Slope and Katherine Leone – and the blending of Merlot (9%), Malbec (7%), Petit Verdot (6%) and Cabernet Franc (1%) lead to a nose of dark black cherry, plum and toasted oak with juicy flavors of blackcurrant, pomegranate and blueberry. There’s ample grip to the sweet tannins, which marry well with a ribeye. The work and subsequent success that Vogele has achieved with his brand can be reflected in his placements on shelves at Northwest grocers such as PCC, Metropolitan Markets, Fred Meyer, QFC, Safeway, Albertsons, Whole Foods, New Seasons, Haggen and Amazon Fresh.
