PLATINUM - 94-POINTS
2021 CRITICS CHALLENGE WINE COMPETITION
Can almost hear this wine say “Hi! I’m from Walla Walla - thanks for stopping in!” That’s thanks to its structure and mix of multi-colored berries offset by brilliant acidity. The finish is extremely long with attractive sweet oak tones keeping the fruit pulsing. Eighteen dollars? Where’s my phone? A Platinum Award winner at the 2021 Critics Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition.

This is a stunning value, an estate-produced, no-expense-spared, top-of-the-line Walla Walla Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon that retails out of the tasting room for over $60/bottle. Its classically styled with pitch-perfect extraction and balance, deftly made by an excellent winemaker in a state-of-the-art facility. At $20/bottle, its an incredible offer.
Deep ruby in the glass. Beautifully aromatic already with meaty black cherry, dusty plum, dark earth, spice and leather leather notes. Entry is broad and supple leading to a mouthful of ripe cherry and plum notes warmly layered on juicy, mouthwatering tannins. The finish is long and smooth, redolent with fruit but never overbearing - fantastic mouthfeel. Like I said, this is deftly crafted stuff with excellent complexity. A total steal at $20/bottle!
BANG! From the best blocks of the wineries Estate vineyard comes this amazing Reserve-level Cabernet. 94-points and Platinum at the Critics Challenge. Perfumed and gorgeous, this wine exemplifies the pitch-perfect balance and tremendous depth achieved at this property.
