Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, September 2011
The blend is 51% Cabernet Sauvignon 29% Syrah and 20% Merlot delivering pure fruit flavors of black raspberry blackberry and cassis. Sourced from young vines and mostly Red Mountain vineyards despite the Columbia valley... The blend is 51% Cabernet Sauvignon 29% Syrah and 20% Merlot delivering pure fruit flavors of black raspberry blackberry and cassis. Sourced from young vines and mostly Red Mountain vineyards despite the Columbia valley label. Succulent and brambly with dusty tannins and a finish with dark coffee flavors. -P.G.

Good saturated bright ruby-red. Aromas of black raspberry dark chocolate licorice and gunflint. Silky on entry then minerally and firm showing a copacetic balance of fruit and juicy acidity. Finishes with good mineral... Good saturated bright ruby-red. Aromas of black raspberry dark chocolate licorice and gunflint. Silky on entry then minerally and firm showing a copacetic balance of fruit and juicy acidity. Finishes with good mineral lift and fairly fine-grained tannins. Mark McNeilly noted that the team did a saignee of between 12% and 15% to concentrate the musts in 2009 but this wine does not seem at all overworked.

A Columbia Valley blend of 51% cabernet sauvignon 29% syrah and 20% merlot. Purple/black color. A bowl of cassis currant and a cocoa resonates on the palate while plush candied fruit takes this wine to another textural... A Columbia Valley blend of 51% cabernet sauvignon 29% syrah and 20% merlot. Purple/black color. A bowl of cassis currant and a cocoa resonates on the palate while plush candied fruit takes this wine to another textural dimension. If pressed to use one word to describe this effort it would be 'mouthcoating'. While weighty on the mid-palate the finish is light on its feet with a kiss of herbs cedar licorice and tar supported by cleansing acidity and just the right amount of barrique on the 2-3 minute finish. One of the best cabernet blends from the States that I have tasted in some time. Bravo!
