2011 2011 Feather
- Winemaker Randy Dunn
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2011 Feather, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, is up there with the top Bordeaux varieties of the vintage. Loaded with notions of dark fruits, chocolate, mineral, coffee bean and scorched earth, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful purity of fruit and a voluptuous texture that only partially conceals edgy, yet ripe, tannin. It has the fruit to be enjoyable now, but will be better in another year or three, and evolve nicely for 12 to 15 years or more.
Saturated bright ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, licorice, mocha and dark chocolate lifted by a violet topnote. Lovely balance and texture, and very suave on the long finish, which features big salty tannins.
