Winemaker's Notes

This gem is a noble expression of the terroir in the Walla Walla Valley. It contains 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec, 2% Carmenere and 2% Petit Verdot from Pepper Bridge, Dwelley, Windrow, Seven Hills and Frazier Bluff vineyards. This great, structured blend starts with a dark garnet robe color, has a toasted wood nose, a mid-palate of tobacco and a viscous, rich black licorice finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark and supple, brimming with black cherry, mint and spice flavors, lingering on the refined finish. Shows intensity and charm. Drink now through 2018. 757 cases made."
91 Points

"The three Cabernet Sauvignon offerings begin with the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley which contains small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Carmenere, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. Notes of balsam wood, tobacco, spice box, violets, rose petal, black currant, and blackberry compose the bouquet of this already complex, savory, nicely proportioned Cabernet blend. Plush on the palate where hints of licorice and espresso emerge, it has layers of flavor and a lengthy, pure finish. There is enough structure for 2-3 years of further evolution and it will deliver peak drinking from 2013 to 2023. "
