    Winemaker's Notes:

    This vintage is by far the best we have gotten from this vineyard. The work that we have done there with trellising, soil, water, and clonal selections is now bringing it even with the other vineyards from whom we source. The identity is fully apparent in this vintage through its soft texture and very full mid-palate. The depth of flavor reveals much about this vintage and those we hope to see in the future from Two Blondes. A lot of the work we have done here has been on an almost row-by-row basis as we sought to increase the root structure of the vines.

    40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot, 7% Malbec

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Two Blondes is sourced from a vineyard planted and owned by Camarda in Yakima Valley. Its blend is 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot, and 7% Malbec It offers up the most complex and complete aromatics of the single vineyard offerings with its array of sandalwood, lavender, incense, smoke, espresso, cassis, and black currant. Velvety-textured, layered, and opulent, this concentrated, lengthy, full-throttle effort should easily see its 25th birthday.

    The Wine Advocate

    This Two Blondes is the best ever—powerful and ripe, with a plush mix of raspberry and strawberry fruit, tart and tangy and mouthfilling. This wine has a huge midpalate, but doesn’t stop there; as it slowly winds through a full-throttle finish, threads of chocolate, coconut, caramel and coffee appear. The flavors go on for several minutes.

    This is a blend of cabernets sauvignon and franc with merlot and malbec. Its macerated fig component hints at tar and sassafras, air bringing out a finely wrought scent of evergreen. The dark fig and blueberry flavors are dense and fruit-driven, the texture pliant and ripe. The wine finishes with impressive length and enough fruit tannin to match a rouladen of beef.

    ($58; 40% cabernet sauvignon, 34% cabernet franc, 19% merlot and 7% malbec) Good dark red. Captivating nose melds very ripe raspberry, smoked meat and mocha; just this side of roasted and yet there's also attractive floral lift. Then supple, smoky and very dry in the mouth, savory more than sweet. This wine's clinging, glyceral texture reminded me a bit of a Chateauneuf du Pape, of all things.

    Smooth, polished and distinctive for a floral cast to its red berry, pomegranate and caramel flavors, lingering on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. Drink now through 2015.
