The only Cabernet Sauvignon we have ever made outside of Doubleback. The 2015 Flying B Cabernet Sauvignon came to us as we secured some incredible fruit contracts in the Walla Walla Valley and our estate vineyards performed so well. Named after Drew’s great-grandfather’s cattle ranch in Central Washington, this Cabernet embodies that spirit and begs for a T-bone or ribeye steak. With the ultra-warm vintage of 2015, we brought these Cabernet lots into the winery in mid-September. All lots were hand-sorted, destemmed, crushed, and allowed to cold soak for 5 days prior to primary fermentation by native and selected yeasts. We completed all-natural secondary fermentation in 60% new French oak and aged the wines with periodic racking for 22 months. Aromatically dark fruit, sage, rosemary, thyme — it almost brings me back to the vineyard sites themselves. Flying B is a full-bodied, sexy, lush and powerful Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon from Bob Healy and Seven Hills Vineyards — both are warmer sites on the Southwest edge of the AVA. Enjoy!
