(From 2012 Vintage) The 2012 Ex Libris Cabernet is a blend of 77% Cabernet, 8% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. The resulting wine has classic, rich Cabernet flavors of cassis and dark stone fruits and resinous herb notes. The wine shows great balance and depth with balancing tannic structure and acidity.
(From 2011 Vintage) A significant portion of Cabernet Sauvignon came from the Sheridan Vineyard, which is one of the great new sites in Washington made famous by Andrew Will's single vineyard bottling. The balance of the Cab comes from the Champoux, Sundance and Katherine Leone Vineyards. The wine was aged for 22 months in predominantly French oak, with about 15% new.
