The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Powerline Vineyard (which is all from Clone 2) is a brilliant, brilliant wine thats loaded with ripe red, black, and blue fruit as well as notions of green herbs, tobacco, chocolate, and even hints of spiced meat. Complex and medium to full-bodied, with good acidity and a balanced, seamless mouthfeel, its already hard to resist yet is going to cruise of 15+ years in cold cellars.

Opening to a nose of green bell pepper and dried sage, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Powerline Vineyard gives up elements of stewed blackberries, dusty plum and dark cherry skin. Medium-bodied, the 13 alcohol wine offers some energetic acidity and tight tannins that linger across the mid-palate, ending with bell pepper, cinnamon and black cherry skin flavors on the finish.

Located at the base of the Blue Mountains in Walla Walla (Washington State), Charles Smith opened his first winery, K Vintners, in December of 2001. The first release, 1999 K Syrah from Walla Walla Valley, initiated the style of winemaking that Charles continues today: small lots of single vineyard Syrahs and field blends of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Tempranillo, and Viognier, all of which are hand-picked, fermented with naturally occurring yeasts and basket pressed.
