Paul Gregutt of the Seattle Times had this to say about the wine and the winery: "Justin Wylie was nurturing a new vineyard, planted in 2000, at his Va Piano winery adjacent to Pepper Bridge. He lost his whole crop in 2004, but calls it a "blessing in disguise" as the vines had a full year to rest. Wylie had already contracted for other grapes as insurance and put them to good use. His 2004 Va Piano Cabernet Sauvignon from Lewis and Cold Creek vineyard fruit, is a fresh, clean wine with sappy berry flavors accented with toasted coconut and mocha."

TASTING NOTES 2003 VINTAGE

The Va Piano Cabernet Sauvignon 03 is full bodied and dense, with an exceptional mouth feel balanced by a lower than usual for the vintage alcohol level and polished tannin structure. The wine shows deep, rich color and intense fruit characters of black cherry, cassis and black licorice in the nose. Big big big yet balanced and capable of aging with great success to the patient winelover.
