Winemaker Notes

Impenetrably dark. An explosive nose of coffee, red and blackfruits, Russian sage, and garden herbs. Lesser notes followof crème cassis, currant, and black olive. On the palate, thewine is dense, sweet, and broodingly dark. Simply perfectfine-grained tannins melded with laser-focused acidity deliverimpressive length that lingers on the palate.

Blend: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 96
Decanter
This massive wine (with 11% Petit Verdot and 8% Merlot) needs a two-hour decant after opening. Then it slowly unveils a dense core of dark fruits, bitter chocolate and creosote that all sing in unison. The palate has a marvellous combination of verve, viscosity and texture, yet also shows a veil of elegance. A bright beam of acidity cuts through the rich dark currants, blackberry compote, chocolate-covered espresso bean and graphite flavours. Gratifying, dense and hedonistic, it's a resounding success that will have an long life in the cellar. Drinking Window 2020 - 2040
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
This wine is a blend of fruit from Seven Hills, Loess, Mill Creek Upland, Leonetti Old Block and Serra Pedace. Aromas of mineral, black cherry, incense, barrel spice and scorched earth lead to a full-bodied textured palate full of black-fruit flavors and tightly wound tannins. It drinks quite young now, needing some time to come into its own. Best from 2024–2029.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Blackcurrants, black raspberries, graphite, leafy herbs and even a hint of bay leaf all emerge from the 2014 Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon, and it's deep, rich and beautifully concentrated in the vintage. Made from 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot and 8% Merlot, it opens up nicely with time in the glass, has ample tannin structure and a great finish. Give bottles short term cellaring and enjoy through 2034.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Well-structured, yet rich and polished, with rose petal and blackberry aromas and complex flavors of briary wild berry, licorice and pepper that linger toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025.

Walla Walla Valley Wine

Columbia Valley, Washington

View all products

Responsible for some of Washington’s most highly acclaimed wines, the Walla Walla Valley has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years and is home to both historic wineries and younger, up-and-coming producers.

The Walla Walla Valley, a Native American name meaning “many waters,” is located in southeastern Washington; part of the appellation actually extends into Oregon. Soils here are well-drained, sandy loess over Missoula Flood deposits and fractured basalt.

It is a region perfectly suited to Rhône-inspired Syrahs, distinguished by savory notes of red berry, black olive, smoke and fresh earth. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create a range of styles from smooth and supple to robust and well-structured. White varieties are rare but some producers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon, resulting in a rich and round style, and plantings of Viognier, while minimal, are often quite successful.

Of note within Walla Walla, is one new and very peculiar appellation, called the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. This is the only AVA in the U.S. whose boundaries are totally defined by the soil type. Soils here look a bit like those in the acclaimed Rhône region of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but are large, ancient, basalt cobblestones. These stones work in the same way as they do in Chateauneuf, absorbing and then radiating the sun's heat up to enhance the ripening of grape clusters. The Rocks District is within the part of Walla Walla that spills over into Oregon and naturally excels in the production of Rhône varieties like Syrah, as well as the Bordeaux varieties.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
