Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Widowmaker En Chamberlin Vineyard is 100% varietal from a single parcel aged in 75% new French oak. The nose surrenders a sensual perfume of smoke, crushed rocks, game, dried fruits, and a hint of chocolate. Rich, dense, and layered, it is the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove. "

"Good saturated ruby-red. Cassis, blackberry, black cherry, cocoa powder and a whiff of raw meat on the nose. Creamy, sweet and deep, with a saline quality to its flavors of dark berries and rare steak. This very rich wine is still quite youthfully tight, and its serious tannic structure calls for patience. According to winemaker Baron, this was the first Walla Walla vineyard planted on 110R rootstock, which can tolerate dry conditions on well-drained gravel and yields a tight, structured style of wine."

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
