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.
