Nearly opaque in color, the wine offers plum, black currant, and green peppers on the nose. The layered palate adds black fruit tones, cedar and herbal accents with firm tannins and a lasting finish. Sourced from the Baby Poux Block and Block 11, this is unmistakably Champoux vineyard fruit. Drink now through 2022. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. 480 cases made.

2008 Vintage

Wine Spectator 92 points

Makes a splash with the first sip, offering gorgeous currant and blackberry flavors, hinting at coffee and cream before the finish recedes. This has polish and refinement. Drink now through 2015. - H.S.

Wine Advocate 95 points

Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (100%) was aged for 24 months in 50% new French and American oak. It sports an alluring nose of mineral, spice box, espresso, violets, plum, and black currant. Plush and more succulent than the Red Mountain cuvees, this already complex effort can be approached now but will be at its best from 2013 to 2023." - Jay Miller

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

Wine Advocate 95 points

Wine Advocate - "The 2007 Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (100%) was aged for 24 months in 50% new French oak. It is purple/black in color with a superb nose of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, tobacco, incense, violets, black cherry, and blackberry. Full-bodied, voluptuous, and succulent on the palate, this pleasure-bent offering will continue to blossom for several more years and drink well through 2032."

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

Wine Spectator 93 points

"Dense, focused and impressive for its intensity, packing in a ton of plum, blackberry, creme brulee and spice flavors without a lot of weight, lingering beautifully on the expressive finish. Best from 2011 through 2018." - H.S.

Fidelitas take on the highly regarded Champoux Vineyard's fruit. Highlights of intense, ripe black fruit flavors create a complex are of mocha, black cherry, and cassis in the aroma and on the palate.

2005 Vintage Tasting Notes

Wine Spectator 92 points

"Rich and ripe, delivering a plush mouthful of blackberry, currant and plum fruit. Hints at smoke and espresso as the finish narrows to a solid beam. The tannins are polished, and acidity balances the lushness, so the wine comes off as refined. Best from 2010 through 2015. 379 cases made." - HS
