Notes From The Winemaker:

76% cabernet sauvignon & 24% syrah

Tasting Notes:
Rich, ripe fruit and classic high-tone Washington floral notes rise from the glass generously. While this wine is reminiscent of the exceptional 2007 vintage, with its big bold character, what’s different here is the dominance of cabernet and how it shapes the wine. Elements of beetroot and chocolate, as well as dark er tones shift the 2009 vintage into familiar cabernet territory. Yet the syrah keeps it brighter than any cabernet can be. The wine smells ripe and inviting, and while the oak presence shows its reserve quality, the oak is a complement, perfectly supporting the compelling fruit and flower perfume. A generous attack is followed by a mid-palate filled with power, fruit and fine grained tannins, all supported by abundant acidity, which keeps the palate clean and leads to a persistent fruit and flower finish. This young wine promises a long future.


Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Supple and sturdy, this beautifully structured blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Syrah, which uses fruit sourced from the estate vineyard, utilizes the best assets of both grapes. The Cabernet gives it both firmness and depth, while the Syrah pipes in vivid, juicy, berry flavors. Still young and primary, the best is clearly yet to come." — P.G. (2/1/2013)

91 Points -
Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Rich and round, with focused, smoky, tangy blackberry and tamarind flavors that sluice through refined tannins on the fine-grained finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2017. 490 cases made." –HS (Oct 15, 2013)

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellers
"(76% cabernet sauvignon and 24% syrah): Medium ruby. Aromas of black raspberry, coffee and mocha. Densely packed but juicy and light on its feet, with noteworthy lift to the lush, sweet cassis and licorice flavors. Not quite as juicy as the Champoux Vineyard bottling--in fact there's a suggestion of almost roasted fruit here--but the syrah component brings a rising finish and serious, palate-coating tannins." - Stephen Tanzer (Nov/Dec 2012)
