2012 Buried Cane Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley
Black fruits and cassis dominate the nose of this intensely colored, dark-toned Cabernet Sauvignon. Accents of vanilla and bing cherry suggest lush fruits and spice. On the palate, the juicy expanse finds balance with supple textures and cozy tannins.

About the Wine: The king of red varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, is also king of Washington State. In this northwest corner of the USA, Cabernet Sauvignon reliably makes wines that combine great varietal character and value.

Washington State’s primary vineyard areas are at the same latitude as Bordeaux, France, the historic home of Cabernet Sauvignon. It shouldn’t really be any surprise that great Cabernet wine is made in both places. Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon makes deep, purple colored wines, with definitive dark-fruit and herbal varietal character. While they are appealing for that dark fruit in their youth, they have the structure to age remarkably in the bottle.

Winery Details

Buried Cane Wines

Washington State wine country has warm sunny summers and cold frosty winters. One time-honored practice to protect grape vines from damaging cold is to bury low-growing vine canes. These buried canes can be unearthed after winter freezes pass, assuring a grape harvest in the following season.
Buried Cane wines are named after this time-honored Washington State practice.

What’s a “Buried Cane?”
It's a cold-climate winegrowing technique. A green-growing vine cane is pulled down and buried in the vine row. This protects it from a hard freeze that might kill the parent vine to the ground. If that happens, the buried cane can be unburied and trained up to replace the freeze-killed parent vine.

Why call a wine Buried Cane?
We're a Washington State (Columbia Valley, to be precise) winery. It gets cold here in winter and, once or twice each decade, we have to deal with a vine-killing freeze. And some vineyards do bury canes (especially those that have the most valuable grapes … burying and un-burying canes is a lot of work).

Buried Cane is a tip-of-the-cap to the place that makes our wines. Real Northwest style.

And, since our wines are very reasonably priced: Real American value.
