Barons Winery 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Mountain, $45

By on July 6, 2019

Weyerhaeuser executive Jim Keller joined the Barons ownership team during this vintage, so this work by then-winemaker Matt Loso holds a special place in the cellar at this Walla Walla winery. Aromas of cassis, black plum and huckleberry lead to ripe flavors of dark fruit, pipe tobacco and cocoa powder, which fit the lithe and elegant structure that’s backed by superb length. This spring, for the second straight year, Barons earned a gold medal for Cab at the Cascadia International Wine Competition.
