"The fruit for this wine comes from Columbia Valley - 60% from the Red Mountain AVA and 40% from the Wahluke Slope. After fermentation the wine spends 10 months aging in barrel, 25% of which is new French oak. 2,500 cases are produced.
The name is a hat tip to Alonzo Harris: "to protect the sheep, you gotta catch the wolf, and it takes a wolf to catch a wolf."
In Sheep's Clothing delivers a ripeness of fruit flavors while preserving the acidity that gives the medium to full-bodied wine a sense of freshness. With layers of cassis, blueberries, and black cherries, this wine lends to a New World style of fruit with more of an Old World structure with a hint of wood smoke. This wine fully embraces an integral part of classic Cabernet Sauvignon by highlighting a complex blend of dried herbs: anise, thyme and bay leaf." -Importer
