About This Wine:
In the world of wine marketing, achieving a 100-point rating from a respected wine publication or critic is pure gold. In the relatively short period of time that it has been a recognized American Viticultural Area, the Horse Heaven Hills AVA of Washington state has generated five 100-point wines.
No wonder Knoll Haven looked to Horse Heaven Hills for its 2016 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon — specifically, the highly-thought-of McNary Vineyard, which sits in sandy soils on a basalt cliff overlooking the McNary Dam. The Cabernet Sauvignon clones were specially selected for this site, which explains why the resulting Cabernet wine is so expressive.
In the Horse Heaven Hills, you'll find dramatic, windswept vistas, clear blue skies, arid hot summers and more than 15,000 acres of grapevines that enable the vintners to craft delicious, approachable wines — wines like the 2016 Knoll Haven Cabernet Sauvignon.
