2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

KLIPSUN VINEYARD
RED MOUNTAIN

Marie-Eve likes to highlight the many faces of the vineyards we find in WA state. Klipsun is one of the oldest vineyards on Red Mountain and the arid conditions are perfectly suited to craft deep, powerful Cabernet Sauvignons. We kept the six barrels separate and aged the wine longer to soften tannins and bring more complexity, it is quite delightful to watch these big wines evolve and come into their own through the years.

In the vineyard

In 2014, dry conditions and warmer than average temperatures during the growing season resulted in a very early harvest at Forgeron Cellars. This harvest was quite compressed and the red grapes were deeply colored and full flavored, we picked our Klipsun Cab fully ripe at the beginning of October.
