96James Suckling

Inviting aromas of juicy and ripe red fruit, ground spice and sweet tobacco on the nose. Full-bodied with fruit-soaked, fine tannins. Excellent structure and composure here. Ripe fruit is complimented by leather, tobacco and toasted herbs. Complex and dynamic with real clarity. Wonderful.

95Jeb Dunnuck

...seamless, elegant, and gorgeous. Red and black currants, tobacco, cedarwood, and background oak all emerge on the nose, and this beauty is medium to full-bodied, has ultra-fine tannins, wonderful balance, and a great finish.

93Wine Enthusiast

...aromas pop, with notes of blackberry, black cherry, mineral and cinnamon stick. The palate brings a mouthful of fruit flavor, with so much plumpness it almost hides all of the structure that's behind it, but there is plenty. It reflects the vintage well, showing freshness, depth of flavor and polish.

91Wine Spectator

Focused and trim, with dense currant, tobacco and espresso flavors that gather tension toward sturdy tannins.

17Jancis Robinson

Notes of fresh, juicy plum, violet and violet candy on the nose move into a decidedly mouth-watering palate. There is vibrant acidity, more apparent than in several previous vintages, while the tannin is fine-grained and persistent. Flavours are generous, friendly and well balanced.


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.
