Substance Cabernet Sauvignon




Substance Cabernet Sauvignon features depth and layer upon layer, black cassis, dark cherry, tobacco leaf and morels. Then, pushes on to a full palate, that is savory, mineral driven and earthbound. Smooth, long, compelling… in a word: harmonious. The straight Substance Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 is outstanding. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, native fermented, aged in French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it’s a killer value that has lots of blue fruits, violets, graphite and leafy herbs in medium to full-bodied, concentrated, layered style.

The creation of young-guns Jason Huntley (Water’s) and Greg Harrington (Gramercy Cellars), Substance allows winemaker Jamie Brown the latitude to make wine of terroir without the pressure to sell anything. By doing so, they sell everything – quickly. Water’s and Gramercy pay the bills and Substance is a pure labor of love. The project started as a whim of sorts, based on the Periodic Table of the Elements with each wine representing an “element” of the grid – when you look at their web site you will understand. The 2005 and 2006 wines were quite good but 2007 takes this winery into another tier and it is with this set of new releases that national acclaim will come. Think of Substance as a sort of Adelina of Washington State – Devo meets the wine trade as youth on a mission with nothing to prove but everything to gain.
