Seattle Times: deep, dark and rich fruit and barrel flavors, without excessive alcohol. The length is superb. - Paul Gregutt

This full-bodied wine is aged in French oak for 36 months. The alluring aroma of maple sugar, cedar and black raspberry unfold on the palate as plum, nutmeg and black cherry ~ thorough- ly seductive. This wine will age gracefully for 10-12 years.

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are a product of the excep- tional Dionysus Block 16 vineyard, one of the oldest vineyards in Washington State yielding intensely concentrated fruit. The Merlot comes from both the Klipsun Vineyard and the Con- ner Lee Vineyard ~ both highly acclaimed sites yielding distinctly different aroma and flavor profiles. The Cabernet Franc grapes are from the Conner Lee vineyard; a fantastic, slow ripening vineyard-yielding fruit with true varietal character and struc- ture. The Malbec is a product from the Wahluke Slope Vineyard which is a warm and arid site that yields ripe and rich fruit. The Petit Verdot is from the Dionysus 13 vineyard and yields an excel- lent representation of the Bordeaux varietal. The combination of all five vineyards and the five grapes results in an enticing blend 36 months in French Oak.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Aged for 32 months with alluring aromas of maple sugar, cedar and black raspberry that unfold on the palate as plum, nutmeg and black cherry ~ thoroughly seductive.
