Hatched from 13 of the top vineyards along Washington State’s revered Red Mountain AVA, an area that’s produced a quarry of high 90’s scores, the new Canvasback is rich and full-bodied, and now with a year in the bottle the flavors are really taking flight.

Duckhorn is an inspirational reference standard for mastering Bordeaux varietals in Napa Valley, and they haven’t skipped a beat with their Washington State project.

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate“Not far behind the more expensive Grand Passage cuvée, the 2014 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and the balance Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Notes of black raspberries, cassis, black cherries, licorice and graphite all emerge from this perfumed, complex and elegant red that has medium to full-bodied richness and a clean, classy finish. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.” 91 Points

From the Wine Enthusiast, “… this wine brings light aromas of mineral and red and black fruit along with a barrel-spice top note. The black-cherry flavors are lush, full and palate coating, supported by firm tannins. It’s high on the delicious scale.” 92 Points
