“Cabernet Sauvignon’s star is on the rise in Washington, as production has increased more than 50% in recent years and shows no signs of slowing down.

What accounts for this dramatic increase? A series of warm vintages since 2013 have allowed growers to successfully ripen the grape in larger tonnages. Additionally, Cabernet acreage has increased steadily in the state. The variety thrives in eastern Washington, where warm summers result in plush fruit flavors and cool fall nights help retain natural acidity.”
