Over half of Washington state’s red grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, that is 18,000 acres planted in Cabernet Sauvignon. Washington State has a climate that is perfect for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. There are some of the warmest areas of the state during the day, and the nights are cool. This range of temperatures, along with the sandy soil and lack of rainfall, result in fully ripe clusters and beautifully pronounced tannins.
