Cabernet Sauvignon, 2018

The Miller family were among the first to plant vineyards in Yakima Valley in 1968. Previously their farm was best known as a training ground for World War II pilots (today, the winery operates from two old hangars). Four generations of Millers have strived to pay tribute to the passion of these pilots with their wines, and their 18-month aged Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception.

Profile

This new-world Cabernet Sauvignon is full of powerful fruit flavors like black cherry and jammy blackberries. This wine spent 18 months aging in French oak, which imparts a subtle spice and cigar-box aromatics.
