Cabernet Sauvignon thrives in the heat of Washington’s Columbia Valley, and the Fries family of Duck Pond Cellars in Oregon continues to prove that its maturing 480-acre Desert Wind Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope can yield stellar Cab and offer it at a remarkable price. Classic notes of plum, red currant, cherry pipe tobacco, cinnamon and toffee are joined by a well-balanced structure of tannin and acidity. These wines are featured in Prosser at their expansive Southwestern-inspired tasting room and stylish Inn at Desert Wind overlooking the Yakima River.
Production: 4,648 cases
