Maker - Cabernet Blend - Gilbert Cellars

About This Item

Overview: We’re the ladies of Maker, here to serve up award-winning wine for discerning palates and the good of human kind.

We started Maker to offer premium wine sans the snobbery. To highlight interesting varietals crafted by award-winning small producers. To tell the story of the producer that hand crafted your wine. And to package up “wine for one” in earth-conscious cans. Because we believe high-end wine isn’t just for the wealthy, distribution shouldn’t just be for the big guys, and great stories—like great wines—are meant to be shared. - Sarah, Kendra, and Zoe

Ever heard of a Washington-Bordeaux blend? Let us introduce you.

The Yakima Valley lies in a warm, dry pocket of Eastern Washington. The climate there brings out the best in bold red grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot—stars of the show in Bordeaux. Each sip is so intense, complex, and smooth, you might think you’re in France.

This Cabernet blend from the coveted Horse Heaven Hills AVA has the richness and warmth of the perfect dinner party and brings the goods for both wine snobs and novice sippers alike. Aged 30 months in French oak, this wine is silky smooth with a long, warming finish. Pair it with just about anything, or don’t. This beauty is happy to speak for itself.
