100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Milo and Kay May's Discovery vineyard which sits on a hillside bench overlooking the Columbia River in Horse Heaven Hills. The nose is perfumed, rich black raspberry and plums, graphite notes, and cedary wood.  On the palate the wine is deep, full- bodied and complex, with a fine core of fruit, ripe, chewy tannins, good acids and outstanding length and grip on the focused and youthful finish.

Time in barrels: 18 months

Total Production: 272 cases

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Mays Discovery, which is 100% Cabernet, is classic in style, with textbook creme de cassis and black currant fruit, graphite and hints of licorice all emerging from the glass. Dark, dense and chewy on the palate, with full-bodied richness and depth, it’s a possible blockbuster in the making, and should benefit from short-term cellaring."
