About This Wine
The Pacific Crest Trail spans more than 2,600 miles.
It treks up the entirety of the West Coast, and criss-crosses some of the country’s best winegrowing regions. In Washington, east of the trail, lies the rugged, fertile land of Washington wine country. Under the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains, Washington vineyards produce powerful fruit at elevations of up to 3,000 feet. Pacific Crest Wine Company seeks to capture the sense of beauty and adventure that defines the Pacific Northwest.
“Our Pacific Crest Cabernet Sauvignon pays tribute to the compelling beauty of its namesake,” says founder Bruce Cunningham. “It showcases the pure fruit flavors of Washington-grown Cabernet Sauvignon in a style that offers depth and structure.”
The 2015 vintage is almost opaque, deep ruby red in hue, with a powerful aroma, full body, fresh acidity and big, chewy tannins, balanced by concentrated berry fruit and sweet oak. It’s a truly beautiful wine.
