Laurelhurst Cellars Klipsun Vineyard Cabernet Cabernet Sauvignon Washington 2008

Member Review by Lucha Vino:

On first opening the nose is showing menthol, licorice, currants and dark dusty fruit. The palate is equally big with black cherry, toffee and semi sweet chocolate with an espresso bean and toffee finish. One hour later the nose shows licorice, menthol, black cherry, currants and dusty cocoa. The palate is showing black cherry, toffee and cinnamon & clove spices with a bold tart semisweet chocolate and espresso bean finish. One day later nose is showing dark black as night fruit, licorice, dusty brambles and some chocolate espresso bean and toffee smokiness lingering in the background. The palate is big and bold with black cherry, cloves and licorice with a finish of menthol, eucalyptus, coffee bean, cocoa and toffee.

Newly located at 5608 7th Ave South Seattle, WA 98108, Laurelhurst Cellars is a Seattle winery located in the Georgetown district just South of the stadiums downtown. The winery was established in 2004 by Gabe Warner, Greg Smallwood and Dave Halbgewachs in the basement and garage of Gabe’s home in Laurelhurst. It did not take us long before we grew out of that space and moved the winery into a warehouse space in Georgetown. From the start our vision was to create wines that would stand alone, showcasing their personality as a result of unique soil, climate and vineyard management. Laurelhurst Cellars produces premium, hand crafted wines from Washington State. With a commitment to quality, we are producing wines from some of the most prized vineyards in Washington. We produce only small lots that showcase Washington’s unique terroir. Creating wines that remain true to their varietal character. Our cellar practices of small-lot fermentation, gentle handling and hand selecting French oak barrels complement the dimensions of Laurelhurst Cellars wines. “Great wine is a reflection of its origin” To this point our wines showcase the unique expression of our vineyards which include Boushey Vineyard, Klipsun Vineyard, Kiona Vineyard, Songbird Vineyard, Burgess Vineyard and Zephyr Vineyard. Each of these vineyards allow us to craft wines with unique vineyard and variatal characteristics with balance and elegance. We invite you to experience our passion. Our wines are available directly from the winery or at select restaurants, wine shops and grocery stores in the Puget Sound area. Our wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Mountain Syrah, Boushey Vineyard Syrah, Boushey Vineyard Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah and Laurus Nobilis (Bordeaux Style Blend of Merlot, Cabernet, Cabernet Franc & Petite Verdot).
