When we started seeing reviews on this wine a few years ago, we thought that this was one of the coolest names for a wine because, like the Shakespear inspiration from which it came, it worked on many levels. Most importantly, this creative collaboration between Dunham Cellars Senior Winemaker, Eric Dunham, and actor Kyle MacLachlan works in the glass.  We have been long supporters of Washington reds anyway (we sold Leonetti in the late 80s), it's good to have something that is serious but clearly doesn't take itself too seriously.  Over 90 from Wine Spectator in every vintage reviewed. 

Harvey Steiman writes in Wine Spectator: "Smooth and velvety, this is a ripe expression of black currant, blackberry and espresso notes, shaded by hints of sage and mint. The finish plays easily against refined tannins, showing enough acidity for freshness. Best from 2014 through 2019. 412 cases made."

Cabernet Sauvignon

Even though Cabernet Sauvignon didn’t originate until the 17th century, it is perhaps the most prominent varietal grown in the world today. Cabernet Sauvignon is a central element of the wines of Bordeaux and of the finest wines of California. Cabernet Sauvignon is grown almost everywhere in the world where fine wine is made-from Lebanon to Australia to Italy, Spain, and South America. It’s thick skin and large seeds (“pips”) give Cab some tannic structure, which helps the grape make some of the longest-aging wines made. Because of its nature, many different winemaking techniques can have a profound influence on the end result, and Cab has a strong affinity for oak. Cabernet Sauvignon can be made in many styles, and there’s a Cab for every palate.
