Cult of Ceres Imporcitor MMXIII
Winemaker Notes – The inaugural release of the 2013 Imporcitor® Cabernet is sourced from the incredible Stone Tree Vineyard lying in the heart of the Wahluke Slope and bound by the Columbia River and the Saddle Mountains. This 250-acre high elevation vineyard boasting gentle South facing slopes is managed by the most experienced Ted Wildman. Imporcitor refers to Ceres’ helper god who ploughs the field “with a wide furrow.” This Cabernet based blend showcases the beautiful fruit, minerality and texture that are hallmarks of this vineyard.
