SHERIDAN VINEYARD 'MYSTIQUE' & CABERNET SAUVIGNON

 

YAKIMA VALLEY, WASHINGTON 2017

 

 

“Wow, hold on to your hats for these latest releases from Sheridan's Scott Greer!” (Wine Advocate). Sheridan Vineyard wines continue to dazzle the critics vintage after vintage, and the estate has undoubtedly changed many a skeptical mind on the complexity and finesse Washington State wines can achieve. In 1997, Scott Greer planted 76 acres of hilltop land in Yakima Valley to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah grapes; the first harvest took place in 2000 and Greer bottled his first wine—a red blend that we today know and love as L’Orage. Since that first release, Sheridan Vineyard wines have continued to build a reputation for incredible opulence, balance, and ageability. You’ve rapidly scooped up our Sheridan Cabernet Sauvignon Block 1 and L’Orage offers in the past, and as incredible as these wines are, the price points don’t exactly call for everyday drinking (for most of us). While your L’Orage and Block 1 bottles continue to mature, you’ll want to pick up two other wines from Sheridan’s prized vineyards that vastly over deliver their modest price points: the 2017 Yakima Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and 2017 ‘Mystique’ Bordeaux-style blend. It may be hard to believe with these sub-$30 price points, but once you taste the wines you’ll see that Greer and his team apply the same passion and attention to detail when crafting these wines as with their top labels. 

 

‘Mystique’ is a Bordeaux-style blend in more than just name: the wine is definitively “Bordeaux like” per Jeb Dunnuck, with its balance of rich, dark fruit with lively acidity and floral and earthy nuances. The Cabernet Sauvignon is classic Sheridan style as well; that is, a picture-perfect example of a wine in balance. The wine has a solid tannic structure and an outstanding finish, and though it’s absolutely ready to enjoy now, will continue to evolve nicely for at least 5-10 years. For the entire Sheridan portfolio, “Scott continues to focus on sustainable farming practices and keeping yields low as the vineyard matures. All of this is driven by his passion to create wines of richness while maintaining a sense of beauty and balance” (Sheridan Vineyard).
