Dusted Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Medium bodied wine that is both lithe and expressive, with embracing tannins wrapping gently around a focused core of dried herb-accented black cherry and licorice flavors, dancing with finesse on the finish.

Dusted Valley was founded on the notion that when family works together the American Dream can turn into a living reality. In 2003, these Wisconsin natives took a leap of faith and started a new adventure in the Walla Walla Valley. Today, under the Dusted Valley and Boomtown labels, the family farms three estate vineyards and crafts honest wines with a sense of place.
When Dusted Valley was created, the Johnsons and Braunels set out on an adventure – leaving behind their comfortable jobs to do something a little unconventional. With strong roots in agriculture, brothers-in-law Chad Johnson and Corey Braunel focus their wine growing philosophies in the vineyard with sustainable practices, low (or modest) yields and minimalistic winemaking. The resulting wines offer a sense of place and showcase their estate vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley and other premier vineyards throughout the state.
As part of their distinctive oak program, Dusted Valley works with barrels crafted from the finest French oak, along with oak sourced from the area near the 45th parallel of Wisconsin where they were born and raised. At roughly a 6,000 case operation, offerings include Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Chardonnay, along with Bordeaux and Rhone Style blends.
This wine is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Malbec aged in 40% new oak.
