Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2018 Squall Line is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from three vineyards: Phinny Hill (60%) and Coyote Canyon (10%)--both Horse Heaven Hills--and Boushey (30%) in Yakima Valley. Deep ruby colored, this possesses classic varietal aromas of blackberry, cherry, plum, crushed black roses, tobacco, cedar, rosemary and wood smoke. The flavors, as well, are direct and true to variety, with dark fruits that are intermixed with licorice, dark chocolate, French roast and Horse Heaven scorched earth. The penetration continues on the back with roasted berries and nuts, mocha and pulverized charcoal, followed by a sweet-dry tannin finish. Pairs well with roasted or grilled meats, good friends and stormy nights.

Production Notes
Our grapes were hand sorted and mechanically destemmed into a small bin for a 2 day cold soak to bring out flavors and color. Yeast and nutrients were then added to start a 6 day fermentation. When fermentation was complete, the “free run” wine was pumped into barrels and the remaining skins were gently pressed to extract remaining wine into the barrels. The wine then went through a malolactic fermentation which softens the wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with roasted or grilled meats, good friends and stormy nights.
