Winery Tasting Room
$65.00 / 750mL | CLUB PRICE $55.25
Old vines produce this supple and sensual Cabernet. Classic in its elegance, this wine is approachable now but built to age. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is always lush, rich and complex. While sometimes a blend, often times a single varietal, it is always the optimal expression of that vintage and always from the most sought-after and reputable vineyards in Washington State.
Cabernet Sauvignon from Dionysus Vineyard is truly exquisite, from the dense dark red fruit flavors to the touch of brightness from the Petit Verdot. A full mouth-feel and long finish adds to the delicious complexity of the wine. This wine is and will always be a favorite of the Anvil by Forgeron lineup and it will age gracefully through the years, so hold on to it for that special occasion.

Produced since 2008, our ANVIL Cabernet Sauvignon has become a pillar of ANVIL by Forgeron. We started sourcing Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from and later on experimented with Petit Verdot from Block 13 which adds generous flavors, structure and great texture. Classic in its elegance, this wine is approachable now but built to age for next decade plus. Block 11was planted in 1988 on a southwest facing slope overlooking the Columbia River. These old-vines benefit from an established root system regulating vigor and allowing the vine to consistently produce rich dense and generous fruit. Amazing grapes combined with old world winemaking techniques and judicious use of French oak provides an excellent example of the best of Washington State’s potential.
