Double Canyon launches with inaugural 2010 vintage
Double Canyon, a limited production luxury wine from the Horse Heaven Hills region in Washington, announced the inaugural vintage of Double Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon. Double Canyon Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon has been crafted to express the unique character of the estate vineyard from which it comes—a perfect setting located in the heart of this distinctive, windswept desert region.
“Named for the two ravines that run through it, Double Canyon Vineyard was established in 2007 with the goal of creating an authentic estate-grown wine to express the individuality of this special winegrowing region,” said Vineyard Manager Will Beightol, who grew up next to the vineyard and whose family has worked the land for 33 years.
The inaugural release of Double Canyon Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon showcases a savory bouquet of dried cherries, plums and sage, followed by an elegantly-structured palate offering vibrant flavors of raspberries and candied cherries balanced by a bright natural acidity.
The 2010 Double Canyon Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from low- yielding vines that express the nuances of the vineyard and features 15 percent Syrah to lend structure and complexity. The 2010 Double Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon is limited to 275 cases.
