Powers Reserve Kiona Vineyard Cabernet
TASTING NOTES
This wine has a great depth of complexity on the nose, with decadent aromatics of black
cherry, blackberry, coco, and cassis that has a nice touch of spice and earthiness. The
flavors feature dark dense layers of blackberry, plum, and cassis balanced with elegant
acidity. The fruit carries the structure with a fine dusty texture that lingers into a long
finish with firm, but refined tannins.

WINEMAKERS NOTES
We are very excited about our inaugural release of the Kiona Vineyards Cabernet
Sauvignon. The blend is made up of two different blocks of the vineyard site. 56% of the
blend is the North Block, which is the some of the oldest plantings on Red Mountain. 44%
is Block 8, which is located farther up the slope at a bit of a higher elevation with younger
vines. Each block of the vineyard site provided us with distinctive aromas and flavors and
we are really pleased with complexity of the final blend. We harvested
both blocks in early October and used the pump-under fermentation
method with PDM yeast. The wine aged for 28 months in 60% new
French Oak barrels.

Bottle Size: .750
