Vineyard Notes
Boushey Vineyards, owned by Richard and Luanne Boushey, are located in the Yakima Valley five miles north of the town of Grandview on the southern slopes of the Rattlesnake Mountains. The vineyards are planted on several sites within a two-mile radius; generally south-facing slopes varying from 700 to 1200 ft. elevation. The first blocks of grapes were planted in 1980 (including this Cabernet Sauvignon) and the youngest was recently planted in 2003. Dick's philosophy of grape growing is to compliment mother nature. Occasionally he tries to fool her into thinking she is in control but most of time it is the other way around.
Production Notes
Our grapes were hand sorted and mechanically destemmed into a small bin for a two day cold soak to bring out flavors and color. Yeast and nutrients were added to start an 8 day active fermentation followed by an 8 day extended maceration on the skins. 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
Pair with asiago, grilled lamb, gyros, or barbecued pork.
