Review:

2009 Wine Spectator - 91 points - Supple, elegant and refined, with a lovely hint of rose petal weaving through the dark cherry and plum flavors, lingering easily on the refreshing finish. Drink now through 2017. 266 cases made. - H.S.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

2008 Wine Spectator - 92 points - Velvety, with a mild grip to the tannins around a supple core of blackberry and black cherry fruit, shading rose petal and cardamom notes around the long finish. Drink now through 2015. 174 cases made. H.S.

88% Cabernet Franc, 6% Syrah, 4% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Riverbend Vineyard. The richest, darkest Cabernet Franc Fielding has produced since the 2005 vintage, this is a very big, hearty, muscular wine.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

A standout Washington Cabernet Franc. The Riverbend Vineyard is producing some of the richest Cab Franc in Washington. Lush chocolate cherry liquor wafts from the glass. Plenty of ripeness enhances the creamy chocolate and giant black cherry and blackberry flavors. In the finish, red fruit (raspberry, tart red cherry) add vibrance, and pepper, baking spices, and bramble add depth. As the wine opens, smoke and a meatiness emerge in the flavor. Tasted 9-21-09 - Jean

The nose opens with sweet oak and spice, then comes the plum, red raspberry, and bramble. Great mouthfeel with rippin' acid, very present but pleasant tannins; spice, bramble, and red fruits on the palate as well, with a long chocolate covered cherry finish. My favorite of the bunch, the red fruits and acid kept it clean, not cloying. - tasted 9-22-09 - Adrienne

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

2006 Wine Spectator - 92 points - Lithe, supple and brimming with raspberry, mulberry and floral aromas and flavors, this glides over the tongue like silk and remains effusive and expressive through the long finish. Drink now through 2014. - H.S."

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.
