    Winemaker's Notes:

    Cabernet from this iconic 35-year-old vineyard always delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. This is a dense wine with great aging potential. Fruit is the star of the show for our Cold Creek Cabernet!

    Varietal Blend: 87% Cold Creek Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 3% Syrah

    Critical Acclaim:

    The Cabernet from Cold Creek is not only old vine, but in terms of tightness and definition, it suggests that it may be one of the most ageworthy wines of the vintage from Washington State. This new vintage blends 10% Merlot and 3% Syrah, and the wine is detailed with iron filings, pepper, bark, and dried earth notes. The fruit is tight, tart and racy-a suggestion of wild berry and spicy plum.

    The purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard contains 10% Merlot and 3% Syrah and was aged for 21 months in 57% new French and American oak. It displays a bouquet of balsam wood, pepper, rosemary, violets, black currant, and blackberry. More structured than the Canoe Ridge cuvee, it has 3-4 years of aging potential. A bit of patience will be required.

    Bright full ruby. Cassis, black raspberry, violet and licorice on the very ripe nose; more floral than the Canoe Ridge Estate bottling but showed a lightly porty quality with extended aeration. Moderately sweet and suave on the palate, with noteworthy purity to the dark berry and menthol flavors. Not as open-knit today as the Canoe Ridge, and showing less in the way of obvious sweetness, but there's impressive texture and richness here. The tannins build on the back, reaching the incisors. 91(+?) points.

    International Wine Cellar

    Features firm tannins up front, but the suppleness underneath carries polished blueberry and currant fruit past hints of sage and spice notes. Finishes with grace. Drink now through 2015. 9,000 cases made.

    This is an outstanding wine! WE-93 rating is right in line with my tastes. Poured through an aerator and allowed to breathe for 10-minutes this vintage is heavenly! I am buying more...
