95Jeb Dunnuck

...a gorgeous perfume of red and black currants, toasted spices, flowery incense, and green tobacco... Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, with silky tannins and a great balance, it’s an ethereal, balanced Bordeaux blend...

94Stephen Tanzer

Sexy floral lift to the aromas of raspberry, woodsmoke, white pepper and spices. At once sweet, firm and concentrated on entry, with harmonious acidity and subtle salinity giving shape and lift to the middle palate... Superb intensity and floral perfume here...finishes very long, with refined tannins and sneaky juicy, floral persistence.

93The Wine Advocate

...a soft purple edge and gives up aromas of blackberry, cassis and dark cherry skin that waft with delicate herbal essence and dried purple flowers on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is energetic and lively on the palate, with a balanced expression and ends with a long, classic finish.

93James Suckling

...pure fruit, fine and creamy tannins and a smoky, meaty aftertaste to the finish. Hints of burnt citrus. Medium to full body. Delicious and succulent at the end.

93Wine Enthusiast

Appealing aromas of green pepper, cherry, fresh herb, saline and moist earth are followed by concentrated, focused, pillowy-soft cherry flavors. It brings a compelling sense of purity and freshness, with mouthwatering acidity seldom seen from this area. It's a complete standout.

92Wine Spectator

A dense core builds gradually as this wine opens up, which helps to highlight the structured blackberry, tobacco and stony mineral accents that power the finish.


United States, Washington, Walla Walla Valley

Walla Walla Valley AVA likes to call itself the Napa Valley of Washington, and given the concentration of well-reviewed wineries in the appellation, the comparison is understandable. The Walla Walla appellation is comprised of 340,000 acres, of which 1,200 acres are vineyards. Walla Walla is located in the southeastern corner of Washington and it extends slightly into northeastern Oregon. It is named after the Walla Walla River Valley, and the city of Walla Walla is the commercial center of Washington’s wine industry. The city was founded in the 1840s by the Hudson’s Bay Company as a trading post, but as early as the 1850s farmers were planting grapes for winemaking. Prohibition shuttered winemaking in the early 20th century, but a winemaking renaissance started in the 1970s when Leonetti Cellars, still one of the state’s most acclaimed wineries, started producing acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon. Walla Walla’s AVA status was awarded in 1984 and today there are more than 100 wineries. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most frequently planted grape, followed by Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese Chardonnay and Viognier.
