Savage Grace Cabernet Sauvignon Red Willow Vineyard 2015
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Michael Savage was in the music industry before starting Savage Grace in 2011. Inspired by Burgundy, Cru Beaujolais, and Loire Cabernet Franc Michael crafts wine in a decidedly 'Old World' way. Michael puts his philosophy of low-intervention winemaking into practice, where the grape, vineyard and vintage form a unique balance thus crafting a lower-alcohol, precise, and expressive wine. This Cabernet Sauvignon comes from one of Washington's premier vineyards and has a typical Cab flavor characteristics, while also having a rich palate coating texture and lots of layers and depth. Enjoying a wine like this, it is easy to see why Michael Savage is one of Washington's best up-and-coming winemakers. This is a benchmark wine.
