Crimson Wine unveils 2010 Double Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon

DBR Staff Writer Published 13 February 2013

Crimson Wine Group (CWG), a California-based company that owns and operates boutique, estate-based wineries, has introduced the inaugural vintage of Double Canyon wine brand - Double Canyon Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2010 Double Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from low-yielding grapes that are grown at estate vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills region in Washington and features 15% syrah that gives structure and complexity to wine.

It possesses a character of dried cherries and plums, and sage with flavors of raspberries and candied cherries on the palate that is balanced by natural acidity.

CWG CEO Erle Martin said they are happy to release the 2010 wine under the Double Canyon label.

"With only a handful of vintages to date, this vineyard is rapidly emerging as one of the preeminent locations in Eastern Washington. As a number of the region's most important producers have purchased our fruit, we are delighted to finally let our estate vineyard take center stage with this new release," Martin added.

The winery has produced a limited number of only 275 cases, where each bottle of the 2010 Double Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon is sold for $40. It will initially be available in Washington, Oregon, California, Alaska, Idaho, Nevada and Montana, with further plans of making it available widely.
