Calling all Cab collectors!  The 2015 Januik Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon will be pre-released October 14-15 and available for purchase to Cellar Circle members exclusively for a limited time.  A perennial favorite, the Januik Champoux Cab sells out quickly so this year, we are offering club members first dibs on this exciting, new vintage.  The wine will be available for tasting at the winery both Saturday and Sunday, and as a special treat winemaker Mike Januik will pour the wine himself from 12-1 pm on Saturday, October 14.

Those of you who have enjoyed Mike’s Champoux Cab in the past know this Horse Heaven Hills classic is always a beautiful blend of power and elegance, consistently rated 90+ vintage after vintage. “Champoux Vineyard is a Washington equivalent of a French grand cru site, and long-tenured winemaker Mike Januik shows his skilled hand with its fruit, producing a wine that shows finesse and balance and a memorable, velvety texture,” wrote Seattle Met critic Sean Sullivan in naming the 2014 vintage to the magazine’s list of the Top 100 Wines of 2017.

The 2015 growing season was another excellent vintage, particularly for red wines, and as good as the 2014 was, Mike tells us he likes the 2015 even more for its balance, ripeness and finesse.  Quantities are limited.
