2009 Wine Advocate - 93 points - The Fidelitas 2009 Boushey Vineyard – 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc matured in all new, 40% American oak – evinces mint chocolate-covered cherry on a very rich, plush, caramel- and spice-inflected palate that somehow manages to avoid a superficially sweet or outright confectionary cast. Allusions to fading lily and gardenia perfume add to the opulently decadent cast of this blend, while smoky black tea adds counterpoint. There is more than enough primary berry juiciness to render this cuvee’s long, luxuriant finish stimulating of the next sip and open for business at the dinner table. I’m guessing it will be worth following for the better part of a decade. - David Schildknecht

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

2008 Wine Advocate - 94 points - The 2008 Boushey Vineyard Red Wine is composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Franc aged for 24 months in 50% new French and American oak. Captivating aromas of toasty oak, boysenberry, herbs, spice box, incense, and assorted black fruits inform the nose of a layered, plush, elegant, medium to full-bodied wine with 3-4 years of aging potential.This already complex offering will be at its best from 2014 to 2020+.

An attractive bouquet of boysenberries, sun-dried tomatoes, grilled meats and earth rise from the glass in this opaque, purple hued wine. The palate is intensely flavored with black currant, cocoa nibs and dried herbs, showing considerable weight, firm tannins and a lengthy finish. Cellar this wine for future enjoyment - drink now through 2017. - Winemaker Charlie Hoppes

2007 Vintage

2007 Wine Advocate - 93 points - The 2007 Boushey Vineyard Red Wine features one of Washington’s best farmed and finest terroirs. It is a blend of 53% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Cabernet Franc aged for 24 months in 50% new French oak. Purple in color with an uplifting bouquet of pain grille, mineral, Asian spices, violets, black raspberry, and black cherry, on the palate it has layers of succulent red and black fruits, loads of spice, and enough structure to evolve for 2-4 years. Drink this stylish offering from 2013 to 2027. - Jay Miller

The red is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Delicious with meals or just a good wine to sip while reading a book in front of the fireplace.
