Januik Winery - Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
Januik Winery was founded by Mike and Caroline Januik in 1999, the realization of a dream that took hold in 1980 when the couple sold their wine shop in Oregon so Mike could study winemaking at UC Davis. After graduation, the Januiks moved to Washington to be closer to family. In 1984, Mike worked his first vintage and quickly became a leading winemaker in the state's nascent wine scene. Utilizing his relationships with growers throughout the Columbia Valley, Mike acquires the best grapes the region has to offer that are then crafted into acclaimed wines of great finesse and balance.
The Januik Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is made from a short list of vineyards considered to be among the best in the state; including Ciel du Cheval, Champoux, Weinbau, Lady Hawk and Obelisco vineyards. The diversity of these vineyards represent many of the most mature, carefully managed sites in Washington. Together, they provide for a full range of fruit expression that allows Januik to craft complex, multi-layered wines true to Columbia Valley terroir as well as the varietal character of the grapes.
