A blend of 33% Merlot (from the original, 1976 block), 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petit Verdot and 13% Cab Franc, this shows Euro-style refinement from first sniff to last swallow.

A blend of 33% Merlot (from the original, 1976 block), 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petit Verdot and 13% Cab Franc, this shows Euro-style refinement from first sniff to last swallow. The alcohol has climbed up a bit without any sacrifice of detail. A mix of berries, cherries and cassis, the fruits are woven around tightly defined, perfectly ripened tannins, with an underlayer of acid and mineral.

Blackberry and plum aromas are complimented by notes of truffles, loamy earth and just a hint of cloves on a somewhat subdued nose. On the palate, the dark fruit shows nicely without being overly aggressive. The firm tannins provide a nice base of structure for the wine, while a touch of acidity add some lift on the finish. Still relatively tight, this wine, hailing from one of Washington State’s most famous vineyards, will likely improve with another 2-3 years in the bottle, and should show well for the following 2 decades.
