K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "This wine says, "Cabernet Sauvignon." It says it with blackcurrant, tobacco, No. 2 pencil....polished with great length. Echoes crushed velvet in an endless refrain. 100% from Jack’s Vineyard - stony soils in an ancient riverbed, located on the floor of the Walla Walla Valley. Very cobbly, Freewater, loam-cobbles over gravel, over sand, dried riverbed. In the rocky soils of this part of the valley, low vigor keeps flavors concentrated. Planted in 1999. Yield: 1.2 tons per acre. 100% whole berry fermentation. Yeast: native. 37 days on skins. 20% new French oak barriques. 22 months barrel-aged on lees."

    Although they're probably better known for their blockbuster Syrahs, I think the guys at K Vintners are making their best wines under the "Substance" label dedicated to Bordeaux varietals. This benchmark Walla Walla Cab is bursting with ripe blackcurrant, cassis, plum, mocha tinges, cigar box, gravelly minerals and fine mouth coating tannins. It's a rockstar rendition of the varietal hitting all the right notes. Packed with flavor and richness but not overdone on the extraction side of things, and with lovely length and structure. At our super sharp price this is not to be missed!

    Wines of Substance is K Vintners other label and I'm frequently impressed with the wines each brand releases. The 2015 vintage of Jack's Vineyard Cab Sauv is very aromatic with notes of blackberry, juicy dark plums, and just a touch of earthiness. The palate is full of tart red fruit flavors that grow softer and rounder toward the finish. The finish is both fruity and leathery. This is a full-flavored yet elegant Cab that just slams at the below-$30 price point.
