    Winemaker's Notes:

    Its elegant, old world structure and dense, dark fruit flavors show cassis, black cherry and cocoa with leather, tobacco and savory spice on a beautifully balanced toasty finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Focused, complex and compelling with the dark berry and cherry flavors picking up nutmeg, tar and tea notes along the way. The finish brings together everything harmoniously, and doesn’t let go. Drink now through 2019.

    Dark and plummy at first, with bottom notes of ink and tanbark, this youthful wine bears and intriguing hint of humus-rich earth. Its cassis flavors are vinous and inky at once, propped up by dark oak notes and earthy tannin. Give it time in the cellar, then serve with herb roasted lamb.

    The purple/black 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley was aged for 22 months in 40% new French oak. It delivers an excellent nose of balsam wood, leather, violets, black cherry, and blackberry. Round, plush, and friendly on the palate with nicely concealed fine-grained tannin, it should continue to blossom for several more years and offer a drinking window extending through 2022.

    The Wine Advocate

    This is a real Walla Walla smorgasbord, mixing grapes from Seven Hills, Pepper Bridge, Va Piano, Loess and Yellow Jacket vineyards, representing three quite different types of soil in the Walla Walla Valley. It includes 6% Cab Franc, which shows immediately in the floral elements as well as providing an underlying minerality. Dense and tarry, with black fruits and a wonderful rock-based frame, this wine has excellent definition. From the scents of violet and blossom, to the sweet berry fruit, to the thick, smoky, chewy tannic finish, it shows heft and power.
