We are very proud to share the reviews of our 2015 wines from the Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
Reserve Cabernet Franc (Yakima Valley)
94 POINTS, Editors’ Choice
Headlining a most impressive debut lineup from this new boutique is this two-barrel reserve. Sourced from the Two Blondes (Andrew Will) vineyard, it's a thick and dense and delicious wine, packed with black cherry, chocolate and espresso. It belongs in the top ranks of all Washington Cab Francs. Yes, the alcohol is up there, but the smooth power of this wine more than justifies it.
*The Reserve Cabernet Franc is a club only wine (Founders and Big Si Clubs). We make small batch, specialty wines for our club members each year. If you're interested in joining the club or learning more, please click here.
Resolution Peaks Red (Yakima Valley)
92 POINTS, Editors’ Choice
Principally Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from old vines at the Dionysus vineyard, this includes 12% Cabernet Franc and a splash of Merlot. It's spicy and toasty, with ripe fruit flavors recalling strawberry preserves and cherry pie. Coffee and smoke hints thread throughout and into the finish. It's oaky in the best way and delicious from start to finish.
Mailbox Peak Red (Yakima Valley)
A lush mix of scents and flavors reflecting the terroir of the Two Blondes vineyard, this blend of 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon starts with complex aromas. Olive, herb, coffee and clean earth notes lead to lovely textures and layers. Tobacco flavors highlight the black cherry fruit, which carries through the finish with pinpoint focus. Drink now and over the next five years.
Wandering Red (Yakima Valley)
91 POINTS, Cellar Selection
Sourced from the Two Blondes vineyard, this is a soft, smooth and toasty blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Cabernet Franc, and 27% Merlot. Its delicious barrel flavors are nicely integrated with its purple fruit. It's buttery-feeling in the mouth, with coffee and toasted nut accents, all bolstered by a firm structure of ripe, slightly grainy tannins. Drink now through 2030.
