Luke Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Columbia Valley, Washington

The LUKE Columbia Valley Reserve Tier of wines is a focus on specific vineyards within the Wahluke Slope and other AVA’s we are closely working with.  Isolating the best of the best fruit, fermenting natively, barrel aging in mostly new French oak ,and bottling the wines unfined and unfiltered will provide rich, powerful, yet elegant wines with tannins that are fine grained and flavors that linger.  These small production wines will highlight the greatness and unbound possibilities of the Wahluke Slope and the greater Columbia Valley AVA, the “fairy dust” of LUKE Columbia Valley.

Tasting Notes

LUKE Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve showcases a deep, dark, almost opaque ruby/purple color, the 2018 reserve bursts from the glass with intense aromas of cassis/black currant, dark cherry and pressed herbs

All fruit was hand harvested in late September to mid-October and processed quickly to retain cool temperatures and fruit freshness. Lightly crushed and fermented in a mix of stainless steel bins and barrel, time on skins averaged 16-18 days and with 50% going through fermentation spontaneously. Gently pressed, the wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels, all second fill for 20 months.

Varietals: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon 6% Malbec 2% Petite Verdot 1% Merlot Alc: 14.8% pH: 3.68 TA: 5.6g/L French & American Oak 257 cases produced

Vineyards: Stone Tree Vineyard
