An inky, dark colored wine, the 2017 Flying B is turning out to be a stunner. High toned red and blue fruit, classic Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with underlying hints of vanilla and baking spices. This project originated from the historic fruit contracts that used to make the Doubleback blend—Seven Hills Vineyard block 1, old block Pepper Bridge Vineyard, etc. As we transitioned Doubleback towards being all estate-grown we did not want to give these incredible vines up and this wine is a great example of why we made that decision. Polished tannin with a nice sense of oak sweetness on the finish. The addition of Syrah really helps bring balance to the wine and I really enjoy the length and complexity of this vintage. As with last year, this wine should drink great now and for the next ten years.
