The only Cabernet Sauvignon we have ever made outside of Doubleback. The 2015 Flying B Cabernet Sauvignon came to us as we secured some incredible fruit contracts in the Walla Walla Valley and our estate vineyards performed so well. Named after Drew‰Ûªs great-grandfather‰Ûªs cattle ranch in Central Washington, this Cabernet embodies that spirit and begs for a T-bone or ribeye steak. With the ultra-warm vintage of 2015, we brought these Cabernet lots into the winery in mid-September. All lots were hand-sorted, destemmed, crushed, and allowed to cold soak for 5 days prior to primary fermentation by native and selected yeasts. We completed all-natural secondary fermentation in 60% new French oak and aged the wines with periodic racking for 22 months. Aromatically dark fruit, sage, rosemary, thyme ‰ÛÓ it almost brings me back to the vineyard sites themselves. Flying B is a full-bodied, sexy, lush and powerful Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon from Bob Healy and Seven Hills Vineyards ‰ÛÓ both are warmer sites on the Southwest edge of the AVA. Enjoy!
