Previous vintage tasting notes:

Wine Enthusiast 98 points: "A stunning Pirouette. Full and magnificently rich, it is loaded with dense and thrilling fruit flavors of black cherry and cassis. A streak of iron and a hint of citrus keep the wine evolving through a long, beautifully balanced finish. Retasted after being open for 24 hours, the wine was as fresh and thrilling as on the first day. Cellar Selection."

63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 9% Cab Franc and 6% Petit Verdot.

Complex aromas and flavors of ripe prunes and spice are complemented on the palate by a rich and silky texture. The overall integration of the wine provides a fresh and pure impression of dark fruits with remarkable structure and a long-lasting finish. - the winery

Cabernet Sauvignon from established vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills contributed texture and earthiness; old vine Sagemoor Cabernet adds another layer of richness and structure. One-third of the blend relies on Red Mountain grapes to give the wine its dark color and added backbone. Grapes from the Wahluke Slope (25%) contribute bright, juicy character.
