The Domaine Magdalena Cabernet Sauvignon is a fantastic example of what Washington State is capable of. Maggie Hedges took a humble, pragmatic approach to wine making with her well placed 4 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon. After planting vines in 2004 on Red Mountain, she patiently waited the proper ten years to start making wine, then set to making low intervention Cabernet Sauvignon. She also achieved Demeter certification during this time, just for good measure. Using only estate grapes and indigenous yeasts, she captured a vinous moment in time on Red Mountain. The wine shows great promise and has a unique character. Nothing flashy or over-extracted, but delicate with gentle curves and earthiness. This is the kind of wine that really gets us really excited about Washington wine.

Tasting note: Clear with a dark ruby core fading to a pink rim, starting to go salmon, with medium viscosity. Clean with youthful, medium intense aromas of raspberry, strawberry, mint, licorice, tangy citrus peel, oregano, dusty earth, and a touch of vanilla. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol, medium acidity, and drying, medium+ tannin. Flavors of licorice, black pepper, blackberry, orange peel, rose petal, oregano, and vanilla. The tannins achieve an effortless, natural balance which complement the lean, medium body. A sort of thin arm elegance, a dry wine with layered, sophisticated flavors. Long finish, high complexity, and will develop nicely for 10-20 years. This is the opposite of a fruit bomb.
