2011 vintage notes: A shoe-in for Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2014 - I'd bet good money on it!

92 points Wine Spectator: Fresh and vibrant, this is tightly wound around fine tannins, offering a generous burst of currant and plum fruit, hinting at clove and pepper as the finish lingers harmoniously. Drink now through 2021. H.S.

Full aromas of mixed berry cobbler lead to hints of roses and dusty cedar. Generous flavors of black cherries, boysenberries, and blackberries sit atop nuanced layers of baking chocolate combined with savory herbs.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

A big mouthful of Washington Cab. Distinctive and polished, this has a nice combination of dark berries, earth and sweet herbs.

2005 Vintage Tasting Notes

Wine Spectator named it the best value from Washington State.

2005 Wine Spectator - 92 points - Ripe and rich, a full-bodied, generous Cabernet Sauvignon that focuses its dark-toned berry, black olive and pepper flavors beautifully. The tannins are present on the finish but can't stop the fruit. - H.S.

From the winery:

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is beautifully structured and complex yet softly layered and appealing throughout. The wine is pleasantly aromatic with the essence of ripe berries and a light earthiness, and the flavors are well integrated. Dark fruit and cassis flavors are followed by hints of dry herbs, chocolate and spice.

This year's vintage is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 9% Syrah and 1% Malbec. The Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone of the blend, adding structure and body, while the Merlot adds flavor and depth. The small amount of Syrah increases the overall softness while the Malbec adds a nice touch of earth.
