94Jeb Dunnuck

...lots of classic black cherry and chocolatey currant fruits as well as notes of leafy herbs and tobacco. Rich, medium to full-bodied, beautifully polished, it's another beautiful, elegant wine from this estate that does everything right.

93James Suckling

Dried cedar with chocolate, iodine and black fruit. Medium body, round and soft tannins and a delicious finish. So delicious.

92The Wine Advocate

...firm, focused core of dark red and black fruit on the nose, with purple flowers and soft oak spices... The medium to full-bodied palate has some strict tannins that grip with complexity across the mid-palate...well-balanced, with a seamless expression of soft, dusty cherry skin and black plum essence that lingers long on the finish.

92Vinous / IWC

Complex perfume of cherry, redcurrant, raspberry, peppery herbs and rose petal. Fine-grained and quite suave... Finishes with strong dusty tannins and hints of medicinal menthol and licorice.

92Wine Enthusiast

The aromas are reticent, opening to reveal appealing notes of fresh and dried herbs. Lighter-styled chocolate and coffee flavors...

91Wine Spectator

Plush and elegantly expressive, with black cherry, sweet anise and espresso flavors that glide toward polished tannins.


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.
