95The Wine Advocate

...gorgeous cassis, earth, lead pencil shavings and hints of toast, this full-bodied, perfectly balanced 2011 has fantastic concentration, ample texture and a classically focused, structured finish.

94Stephen Tanzer

Aromas of redcurrant, cocoa powder and rose petal, plus a whiff of game...

92Wine Spectator

Fresh and lively, with broad strokes of cherry and spice that linger intensely and persistently on the open-weave finish.

United States, Washington

Washington State, with 59,000 vineyard acres, is the second largest producer of wine in the United States. Wine was made in the state as early as the mid-19th century, but Prohibition and, later, restrictive state laws killed the wine making business in the 20th century until the 1960s, when laws changed and large and small producers started making wines. An influential horticulturalist and agriculture professor name Walter J. Clore studied various grape clones in the 1960s to find the best ones for Washington, and by the 1970s Yakima Valley, Walla Walla and Columbia Valley had all become important grape growing areas. The best vineyards in the state are east of the Cascade Mountain range, where hot dry summers and cold winters are conducive to successful viticulture. Numerous grape varieties are grown, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc at the head of the list.
