Now a Cabernet Sauvignon dominant wine, our 2013 Shya Red sources from older, nearly forgotten vineyards planted 35 to 45 years ago in the western half of the Yakima Valley. Here, we find Konnowac Vineyard boasting the oldest Petit Verdot and Malbec in the state as well as Morrison Vineyard with Cabernet vines dating back to 1968. Although we have been working quietly with these vineyards for many years, it is recently after hard work and fine tuning that we finally showcase these in our Shya Red blend.
Our Shya Red Cabernet Sauvignon is intended to showcase the characteristics of this king of grapes. Merlot, Petit Verdot and a trace of Malbec add richness and complexity to the blend. The dark crimson wine shows aromas of black cherry and dark currant with a fascinating spice note. Fresh and juicy dark fruit flavors are followed by round and impeccably integrated tannins. Long and alluring this wine is above all, greatly balanced. Aerate aggressively if consumed young, otherwise best from 2018 on.
