Buy this earthier, lighter bodied Cab from Washington because it's versatile and great for every day drinking

Experience

This is a restrained Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington state. This wine falls somewhere between what most people would consider "normal" for a Pinot and a bigger California-style Cabernet. Definitely a great gateway heavier red wine.

Winery

Desert Wind's beautiful winery is perched on a bluff overlooking the Yakima River. Their two estate vineyards lie at the foot of the Saddle Mountains in Eastern Washington's Columbia Valley region known for its fierce summer conditions. Desert Wind's wines are handcrafted using small lots of fruit and extended barrel aging to create unique flavors. These wines are some of best values we've come across.
