    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our Foreshadow Cabernet Sauvignon showcases our best Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Columbia Valley, Red Mountain, Horse Heaven Hill and Yakima Valley appellations. We blended a bit more than usual in 2008 to amplify the fruit and take advantage of the earlier ripening varieties in a cool year, like Malbec and Petit Verdot. Aromatically the wine shows plum, blueberry, red and black currants along with violets, cedar, graphite, subtle dried herbs and a touch of sandalwood and spices. The wine enters the palate with round, spicy sweet fruit, carries good weight on the mid palate and shows a fruit flavor spectrum of red currants to the blue and black fruits with tertiary flavors of truffles, anise, cola and tobacco with a hint of fresh and dried herbs. The wine has a long finish that is layered with lush, fine grained tannins followed by a graceful acidity.

    Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Malbec, 12% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    In an effort to further differentiate the Foreshadow Merlot from the Foreshadow Cabernet, winemaker John Bookwalter has kept each out of the other’s blend. This is a riveting, complex, supersized wine, with alcohol over 15% and plenty of intriguing barrel flavors. The black cherry-berry fruit is swathed in spice, chocolate, cedar and coffee, complex and well-crafted.

    Ripe and round, with a sprinkle of gritty tannins around a generous core of cherry, rhubarb, orange peel and spice flavors. Shows polish and density that carries everything into the long finish.

    The 2008 Foreshadow Cabernet Sauvignon (75%) contains 12% Malbec, 12% Petit Verdot, and 1% Cabernet Franc in its makeup. Aromas of sandalwood, incense, Asian spices, lilacs, and assorted black fruits inform the nose of a velvety-textured, incipiently complex, layered wine with excellent balance and length. Give it 2-3 years to fully blossom and drink it from 2013 to 2023.
