2017 Borne of Fire Cabernet Sauvignon

People loved the 2016 - new vintage!
2017 Borne of Fire Cabernet Sauvignon...$19.99

Borne of Fire is a Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from a remote new vineyard region in eastern Washington State known by locals as “The Burn.” This exciting region was named from legends of early settlers who set fire to the land in the fall to replenish and rejuvenate the grasslands for their horses in the spring. Borne of Fire is a wine that, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, has laid claim to this unique land with a torrid past and found its true awakening: grape growing. From a rugged terrain where agriculture was scarce to where present grapes grow mighty, Borne of Fire is a new expression of Cabernet Sauvignon that was created to reflect the uniqueness of this unlikely terroir.

Previous vintage scored huge, nothing on the 2017 yet
2016 Borne of Fire Cabernet Sauvignon The Burn
This is the first year made of this wine with wonderful blackberries, rose leaves and blueberries. Wildly floral. Stems. Full body and round and fine tannins. Juicy and intense. Shows an eccentric style. All large oak. A new nature and personality. Drink now or hold.
Rated 96/100 James Suckling
