This wine is a beautiful, supple and well-structured blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12.5% Cabernet Franc, and 12.5% Petit Verdot; handcrafted and estate-bottled from five of our own unique blocks grown in the high elevation, north-facing Octave Vineyard in Walla Walla.
The debut 2012 vintage of Hanatoro is the first ever produced entirely of fruit from the ‘Octave’ Vineyard. Since we are at our very core food and beverage people, our wine was produced in a style that will age well yet provide great expression, compatibility and pleasure to your dining experience today!
