Crossford Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 is from Yakima Valley in Washington, and is a rich, luscious red wine.
Crossfork Creek’s Cabernet Sauvignon is a convincing example of Yakima Valley’s suitability for king Cab. The combination of long hours of warm sunshine, rainshadow-induced arid conditions, and cool altitude set up the conditions for lavishly ripe fruit, tannins that are supple and polished tannins, and generous balancing acidity. Crossfork Creek is vibrant purple in colour, with appealing scents of dark fruits like blackberries, plums, and cassis. When you first taste this wine, you are struck by the rich texture that’s accompanied by lush black fruits, spice, and anise that lead into a long finish showcasing the elegance and power of this stylish Cabernet. Twenty months of ageing in seasoned French and American oak barrels will help this wine age for several years. Bold enough for deeply smoky barbequed short ribs, or spiced-rubbed chicken, but also deeply satisfying on its own.
