WOODINVILLE, Wash., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time since its inception in 2001, Barons V (http://www.baronsv.com) is releasing its newest vintage to the public:
2007 Barons V Cabernet Sauvignon ($55)
Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot
Only 1,185 cases of the 2007 Cabernet were produced, making the $55 per bottle asking price a steal. Currently, this new vintage is only available through the winery, which is offering select discounts to mailing list members. To join the mailing list or purchase the wine, contact the winery at (425) 398-7147 or via email email@example.com.
Vine & Sun LLC was founded in 2001 by five partners who share a passion for fine wines. Since then, the company has produced seven vintages under the Barons V label that were originally only available to a mailing list of customers, and in select fine restaurants and wine shops. The company also produces a smaller quantity of Syrah, but it concentrates its efforts on producing Washington State's leading red varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon.
It is bold to declare that Washington State's Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the best in the world, but Barons V winemaker Matthew Loso believes this to be true. Washington State sits comfortably between the same latitudes as Burgundy and Bordeaux, and the Columbia Valley region of the rugged Eastern Washington desert shares their charmed winemaking conditions. Loso has harvested the best grapes from the Columbia Valley and Red Mountain regions to create a magnificent wine in the Barons V 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon.
Matthew Loso has artfully contributed to the Cabernet Sauvignon's powerful, complex nature with a dash of Merlot, a pinch of Cabernet Franc and a dram of Petit Verdot. The blend is held in 100% new American oak barrels for 25 months before being bottled and aged for another year.
"We're definitely excited to have the public taste this new release for the first time," Loso said. "Washington Cabernets age beautifully, but if you drink them when they're young, inside the first five years, you better hold on to your hat, because they're going to take you for a ride."
To celebrate their first vintage made available to the public, Barons V is hosting a party:
