Previous vintage notes:

2009 Wine Spectator - 90 points - A strong tobacco note weaves through the dark berry and cherry fruit in this firm, chewy red, which finishes with intensity. Best from 2014 through 2019. - H.S.

Gold Medal, 2010 Savor Northwest Wine Competition

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

"a dark and smoky wine with tight scents of cassis, raspberry and pomegranate. Suggestions of mushroom, tobacco and lead pencil waft through the finish, and this has enough concentration to spend some extended cellar time, rare indeed for domestic Merlot." - Paul Gregutt "Baby Leonettis Transcend Their Price tags" - Seattle Times 11-27-07

If you like a classic, rich, age-worthy Walla Walla Valley Merlot, this is it! This heavyweight Merlot contains 84% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards: Dwelley, Killian, LeFore, Pepper Bridge, Sagemoor Farms, Seven Hills, Spring Creek and Weinbau...eight jewels. The wine's floral, lavender nose and a beginning blast of cassis are simply wonderful! Sugar Daddy caramel and cigar forms a remarkable finish to this wine. A delightful culinary pairing for this wine would be a one and one-half inch T-bone, grilled to a perfect medium rare. Rub a large garlic clove over the bone on both sides, and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Serve with a side of Italian cranberry beans cooked with fresh sage and garlic, plated with a drizzle of olive oil, pepper and salt to taste. 816 cases produced.
