Long Shadows Wineries Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Feather 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: Spicy black fruit aromas and flavors combine with a hint of toast to make for an expressive, age-worthy wine. Balanced, silky tannins and intense fruit flavors add dimension giving the wine a dense, rich mouth-feel Winemaking: Like the 2003 debut vintage of Feather, the 2004 reflects Randy's appreciation for the Columbia Valley. A frequent visitor here, particularly during the growing season, Randy has come to know Washington's vineyards well, checking yields, tasting, and inspecting the grapes' skins for a dark complexion before making the call to pick. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is hand-harvested, fermented in small lots and aged 23 months in Vicard French oak, Randy's cooper of choice at Dunn Vineyards as well.

Long Shadows Vintners was founded in 2002 by Washington wine visionary Allen Shoup, who as President and CEO of Chateau Ste. Michelle from 1984-2000 forged internationally acclaimed winemaking partnerships with Piero Antinori (Col Solare) and Dr. Ernst Loosen (Eroica Riesling). Long Shadows Vintners now builds upon those successes by bringing an elite cadre of the world’s most celebrated winemakers from the finest wine regions around the globe to Washington in order to create world class wines that showcase the viticultural excellence of Washington State's Columbia Valley. Each celebrated vintner partners individually with Shoup and resident winemaker Gilles Nicault on a distinct winemaking program to produce a single “best of type” wine under a unique label. These include: Pedestal Merlot by Michel Rolland (international consultant and owner Le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol); Sequel Syrah by John Duval (formerly of Penfold’s Grange, South Australia); Poet’s Leap Riesling by Armin Diel (Schlossgut Diel, Nahe, Germany); Pirouette by Agustin Huneeus (Quintessa, Napa Valley) and Philippe Melka (Vineyard 29, Hundred Acre, Napa Valley); Chester-Kidder by Allen Shoup and Gilles Nicault (former winemaker at Woodward Canyon, Walla Walla Valley); Feather Cabernet Sauvignon by Randy Dunn (Dunn Vineyards, Napa Valley, formerly of Caymus); and Saggi by Ambrogio & Giovanni Folonari (Cabreo, Nozzole, from Chianti Classico and La Fuga, Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany). Long Shadows is named in tribute to the stature of this select group of individuals, who continue to shape the wine industry with their benchmark wines and wineries. Read less

Enjoyed this wine October 12, 2007. Black suede gloves cupping acorns. I proudly shared sips with everyone I saw. This bottle was a lovely present which I saved for a year.

I was really suprised by the texture and body of this cab. I had no idea it was an Oregon wine, tasted more like a big California Cab full of fruit and extremely smooth. I would definitely drink this again. We had it with lamb and it went perfectly.
