Rue Naujac Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 33 2019
Bold and full-bodied, with balance and complexity.
Grape: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Washington, USA
Born and raised in the New World but influenced by his time in Bordeaux, this Columbia Valley Cab represents wine importer Nicholas Pearce’s story in a bottle - New World terroir meets old world "savoir faire".
Showing aromas of black and red fruits, toasted herbs, graphite and leather. A mouthful of ripe dark fruit consisting of blackberry and black currant combined with notes of spice and dark chocolate. A fruit-forward finish offering a balanced and integrated tannin structure. This Cab is a blend of two different vineyards, one in Wahluke Slope AVA; the other in Horse Heaven Hills AVA.
Rue Naujac is the street Nicholas lived on while studying/working in France and Bordeaux is the country's 33rd department, both of which gave the inspiration for the name and lot #! He would always make reference to the "33" as a slang name for the city of Bordeaux (like THE6IX), always to the amusement of his French entourage.
