2016: 90 points & Gold Medal Winner: This Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Snoqualmie Washington’s Sigillo Cellars offers aromas of ripe black fruit with notes of bell pepper, mint and Allspice. On the palate, it delivers flavors of blackberry sauce balanced with savory and earthy notes of dried herbs before a dry finish hinting at graphite, cocoa and cola. – Reviewed by Gary Hayes

E & E Shaw Vineyards

Our 12 acre vineyard is planted with the 3 major Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, in the world famous Red Mountain Apellation. It was planted for us in 1997 by Eve’s brother, Fred Artz. It’s planted on a 9′ X 6′ spacing, bilateral cordon trained, and is spur pruned to produce approximately 10 lbs. per vine or about 3 1/2 tons per acre. We hand prune, thin and harvest and use no herbicides. We practice integrated pest management with a very soft, sustainable spray program. Because we are small, we can take great care in hand raising our grapes. We believe that exceptional wine is largely made in the vineyard. Our 100% estate grown red wines are proof of the high quality of our vineyard.

Sigillo Cellars sources Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Shaw vineyards.
