Donedei Current Release

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

COLUMBIA VALLEY  |  WASHINGTON STATE

All grapes for Donedei wines are hand-picked, sorted and gently crushed – we are 100% free run, which means we do not press (very unusual) to enhance concentration and color intensity and then ferment in small lots using proprietary yeasts. In addition, our wines are un-filtered and un-fined so we recommend decanting a bottle before enjoying. Our team takes great pride in what we do and we hope it shows in every glass.

 

Our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a very finessed wine with character that is just now opening. Big cherry notes with full body and spice. This wine needs time but is beautiful now and well into the future. Oak and barrel characters are well balanced in the nose and on the palate. The glycerin is forward and fills the mouth. Enjoy with grilled, full flavored red meats or game.
