2018 Batchelor's Button Cabernet Sauvignon

The 17th vintage of the Batchelor's Button is 84% Summit View Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Wallula Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Olsen Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon. The Batchelor's Button Cabernet Sauvignon is a big, classically styled Walla Walla Cabernet but is fresh and light on its feet.

Tasting notes
This “almost Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon” is a clone of third growth Bordeaux Cabernet Sauvignon. Black-Red hue, aromas of black olive, red currant, cigar box and tobacco, with distinct notes of dust, minerality, leather, vanilla, and tapenade.  The texture is medium weight and seamless with delicious acidity and long lasting, dry, yet gentle tannins.  There are characters of red currants, dust, and vanilla flavors.   
Production notes

Summit View was harvested on September 25, Wallula was harvested on October 15, and Olsen Ranch was picked on October 24.  All the grapes were hand-harvested, hand-sorted, and fermented by yeast specific for Cabernet Sauvignon.  The wines were fermented to dryness and pressed.  Only the free-run wine was retained for the Batchelor’s Button.  All the wines were aged in French Oak barrels (33% new) for 28 months prior to bottling.
