94 POINTS - Wine Enthusiast (Cellar Selection)
Bright and dense, totally packed with dark fruits and aromas, this young and brambly blend brings tart, wild berry, cassis and smoky espresso into play full force. There’s black licorice also, coffee grounds, and powerful tannins, along with the acids to age. ~ Paul Gregutt
Wallula Vineyard - Horse Heaven Hills
Gorgeous ripe fruit with plenty of delicate zip layered in smooth dark cab franc aromatics. Luscious blueberry merlot flavors spiced with peppery syrah and sangiovese. Taken deep by fully developed petit verdot. Rides off into the distant sunset on the finish of cabernet sauvignon. An unctuous beauty which should show well for at least two plus decades. A mother’s favorite.
