2021 MNW "In Sheep's Clothing" Cabernet Sauvignon
The name is a hat tip to Alonzo Harris: "to protect the sheep, you gotta catch the wolf, and it takes a wolf to catch a wolf." Training Day, Movie
In Sheep's Clothing delivers a ripeness of fruit flavors while preserving the acidity that gives the medium to full-bodied wine a sense of freshness. With layers of cassis, blueberries, and black cherries, this wine lends to a New World style of fruit with more of an Old World structure with a hint of wood smoke.
This wine fully embraces an integral part of classic Cabernet Sauvignon by highlighting a complex blend of dried herbs: anise, thyme and bay leaf.
The fruit for this wine comes from Columbia Valley - 60% from the Red Mountain AVA and 40% from the Wahluke Slope.
