2021 Latta Wines ''Kind Stranger'' Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, Washington, USA

Beautifully deep and rich with ripe black fruit and spice notes.



85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec.

Washington Cabernet vines grown in basalt derived gravel on the shoulders of Red Mountain give excellent depth, intense fruit and ample structure from this awesome site. The Weinbau Vineyard's 30 year old Malbec vines pile on the concentration and spice notes.

Fermented whole berry with indigenous yeasts, then macerated an average of 28 days between the lots. Basket pressed to barrel for 20 months, 15% new French oak mostly 500L.

Andrew’s good friend and tattoo artist, Kris Chau, created the label.


Latta Wines puts uncommon varietals from the most unique vineyards in Washington State on center stage. Years of scouring the geologically diverse soils of Eastern Washington led to an initial release of two very special wines, then four and so on. The extremely small production, mostly Rhone offerings are put forward from sustainable vineyard sites after fermentation with native yeast and aging in mostly neutral french barrique and puncheon.

Latta Wines was founded in 2011 by winemaker and owner Andrew Latta. It is the product of years of sweat equity, a gamut from cellar hand to winemaker at a Washington winery of note. Andrew is now proud to share his personal wines. He was born and raised in Kentucky and the restaurant world was his path to wine. A similar trajectory up from the basement as a busser to a Sommelier working in Thailand exposed him to the wines of world. While developing award-winning wine programs, Washington State stood out among all the emerging and traditional wine-growing regions. So, sight unseen, fifteen years ago he jumped into his first harvest in Walla Walla and year after year Washington still delivers.

**All Sales from the Kind Stranger wines go to Mary’s Place, a homeless shelter for women and families in need, based out of Washington State. Proceeds also go to the International Rescue Committee which helps people who have been through a disaster/famine/refugees.
