Winemaker Notes

The 1989 vintage of this wine was ranked #6 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1992

Seductive color saturation to the rim. The nose on the Cabernet Sauvignon captures what makes this one of the world's finest wine grapes—it is an exotic array of spices, dried herbs, lavender, charcuterie, mocha, cassis, vanilla, andripe red and black fruits. In the very distant background thereis a lovely note of mint. The wine has incredible density,with very ripe tannin that is suave on the palate. The finishis ultra long and pleasant. This wine is distinctively WallaWalla and why our valley is becoming an international focalpoint for Cabernet.

Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 4% Carmenere and 3% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 98
Wine Enthusiast
Dense, aromatic, layered and rich, this wine explodes from the glass with scents and flavors of concentrated berries, cassis, black cherry, and more. The vines have reached a mature stage that amplifies the fruit and keeps the generous barrel flavors in perfect balance. The barrel notes roll on in a chorus of toasty accents, and the finish is as good in the last minute as the first whiff from the glass.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bigger, more structured wine. Dense, layered, and with a suave personality, it will continue to blossom for another 5-6 years and should see its 20th birthday in fine form.
W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
The violet and tobacco leaf scents mark thsi clearly as a Walla Walla Valley cabernet. With air, a pretty herbal note, like sarsaparilla, starts to emerge. For all of these savory elements the wine is remarkably generous and fruit-driven, packed with flavors of cherry and fresh fig. They more effortlessly across the palate, driven by a brisk acidity, marked by fine tannins. A formidable wine, ready to decant for a hearty steak.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Dense with tannins, sporting flavors of licorice, blackberry and smoke that push to get through. This finishes tight but glows with fruit and savory notes on the long aftertaste. Needs significant cellaring. Best after 2014.
