2020 New World (Fanfare Club Exclusive)
Summit View Vineyard ∞ Walla Walla Valley AVA Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
ONLY available to members of Fanfare Club. ONLY 65 cases produced. $68 | PRE-ORDER
Thanks to the unexpected events surrounding harvest 2020, we sourced Cabernet Sauvignon from our long-standing Syrah grower, Summit View Vineyard in Milton-Freewater, OR for the first time. This silky, lower tannin Cab for Pinot lovers pays tribute to Antonin Dvořák’s “New World Symphony No. 9 in E Minor, Op. 95.” Grown at 1,150 feet in elevation in the Walla Walla Valley AVA, the site’s deep, well-drained glacial soil produces full-bodied fruit with intense flavors and vibrant acidity. Aged 12 months in French oak.
PALATE: TBD.TECHNICAL NOTES
Jeff Kralik (The Drunken Cyclist) Review: Only available through Bells Up’s Fanfare Club. Dave wanted to make more of a new world cab. Thus, New World. Dvořák. From the same vineyard as the Syrah and will be bottled this fall. Shy on the nose but lovely fruit eventually coaxed out. Also described as a “Cab for Pinot lovers.” Fantastic. Fruity with depth and complexity. Yowza. Tannins are soft and mostly integrated. Another whoa. Outstanding. 93-96 Points (Barrel sample).
