Weinbau Vineyard is located on the Wahluke Slope near Mattawa. The vineyard is one of the oldest in the area and is known for its particularly fine silty loam soils. This talcum powder-like soil provides good drainage and heat retention. Thanks in part to its location at the eastern portion of the Wahluke Slope, the vineyard experiences more moderate temperatures that help create longer hang time and ideal ripening conditions.

The Weinbau Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is concentrated and well-structured on the palate with loads of black cherry, anise, and mocha flavors. It is highly perfumed with expressive notes of cassis, raspberries, and cedar. It's long finish and supple texture bodes well for a long life in the cellar.among the most well-defined and distinctive areas due in large part to its geography.
