Notes from 802 Distributors
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Horse Heaven Hills, aged seven months in 80% American oak and 20% French oak. A ripe and expressive style with aromas and flavors of juicy black cherry and red currants. These flavors are carried through the full-bodied palate finishing with a persistent, almost sweet fruit finish with hints of herbal, clove-filled oak notes.
Alder Ridge Winery is a celebration of one of the founding, most highly reputed vineyards in the famed Horse Heaven Hills appellation of Washington State. Best known for its award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, the vineyard’s first vines were planted in 1997 and include plantings of Grenache, Mourvedre, Roussane, and Cinsault, among dozens more, making it the site of Washington’s most sought-after reds. Prized fruit from this prolific, 800-acre site is purchased by many of the state’s most notable boutique wineries.
