Fielding Hills
2006 Cabernet - Merlot - Syrah
Washington's Answer to California Cult Reds?

Fielding Hills 2006 Wines"I don't believe I have ever given such rave reviews to an entire lineup of wines from a young winery."
Paul Gregutt, Wine Editor,
Seattle Times

"The wines are supple, silky,
polished and rich in flavor".
"...luscious, plush reds."

- Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator

Fielding Hills
Cabernet Franc 06 $32.95/$29.66

For the second vintage in a row, Fielding Hills' "sleeper wine" is the Cab Franc. Fantastic aromas of baking spice, licorice, fragrant red berries, and distant cedar smoke.

The supple flavors offer and perfect combination of fresh and jammy raspberry with darker berry and spicy currant emerging. A trace of minerality shines through the creamy finish, and you're left thinking of the myriad dishes you could pair with this stellar Cab Franc.

Fielding Hills
Cabernet Sauvignon 06 $39.95/$35.96
The nose is playful, with red berries, black cherry candy and caramel. Then POW! Fielding Hills Cabs capture the essence of Cabernet, with a dense cassis core accented by sweet black cherry. Great structure and balance. The caressing finish echoes with dried herb, licorice, earth, and generous black fruit.

Paul Gregutt's Top 100 Washington wines for 2006 included the Fielding Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 04 at the NUMBER THREE SPOT. The only wines ranked higher were from Quilceda Creek and Cayuse.

Fielding Hills
Merlot 06 $38.95/$35.05

Merlot skeptics look out: Fielding Hills makes a real head-turner of a Merlot. Unusually rich and full-bodied, the dark red cherry and tobacco aromas beckon you into the glass. Gushing plums and cherries mix with peppery barrel spice and succulent, slightly earthy red fruit on the savory finish, lasting nearly a minute. Magnificent Merlot.

Fielding Hills
"Tribute" 06 $33.95/$30.56

The most "user-friendly" of the Fielding Hills wines, the Tribute (formerly Riverbend Red) is a winner from first sip. Delicious, huge black cherry and mocha flavors fill your mouth, adding sweet plum, tobacco and anise on the long, slightly chewy finish.

Fielding Hills
Syrah Wahluke Slope 06 $42.95/$38.66

Heady, dark aromas of violets, bacon smoke, espresso bean, and spiced black berries announce the arrival. Multi-demensional and layered, the black berries, plums and currant just don't stop giving.

The tannins are present, balanced by big fruit and acidity, creating a Washington Syrah that's at once burly and nimble.
