The Horse Heaven Hills is an eastern Washington AVA contained within the large Columbia Valley AVA but actually located between the Columbia River and the Yakima Valley AVA to the north. Though not as well known as the larger valley regions, Horse Heaven has over 6,000 acres of vines, two-thirds of which are red, producing about 25% of the state's annual crush. Planting here started in 1972.
The 2017 vintage marks the first year that Double Canyon wines were produced entirely at their new state-of-the-art facility adjacent to Red Mountain. The 2017 growing season provided typical excellent growing conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. The Horse Heaven Hills experienced significant moisture accumulation in the early spring, and tapered off significantly as the season progressed, which provided perfect conditions for bloom and fruit set. Post veraison temperatures provided enough heat to encourage adequate sugar development. Ideal berry sizes resulted in excellent extraction, producing wines with great depth and concentration.
