Current, blackberry, crushed violets, some pepper. Length throughout the pallets with a lasting finish — 3 months ago
Loved this. Tannins coming through, so good now. Probably better in a few years; so worth cellaring. Enjoyed looking over the Salish Sea in Mukilteo, WA. — 9 months ago
A dark ruby magical carpet ride. Live the distinctive profile of Champoux vineyard. Yassss. — 4 years ago
This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State.
Full bodied with medium acidity.
Dry and very fruity on the palate.
Showing black fruits with earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco, graphite, vegetables and herbs.
Tangy finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.
Rich and extracted. Fruit forward with nice complexity.
Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.
Very tasty and good by itself. This Single Vineyard needs time to open up properly, so be patient.
I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
15.1% alcohol by volume.

Pop and pour. A bit over a year and a half since my last btl. On the nose: alluring as ever with blackberry, blueeberry, vanilla, charcoal. On the palate, this seems a little less vibrant than I would like: good acid and fruit up front, but falls of quickly on the mid with finely grained, but attenuated tannin on the finish. If this btl is any indication, this is on the downslope, but still drinking well. — 10 months ago
Great solo (big and bold) or with food. Not too heavy on tannins — 7 months ago
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Red Mountain in Washington State.
Dry on the palate and fruit forward with black fruits and oak, vanilla, spices, tobacco, chocolates, coffee, cola, earth and peppercorn.
Shows a great mouthfeel with nice complexity. Tangy and interesting. Spicy and rich with nice structure.
Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime (90 minutes).
A great sipping wine by the porch. Big, yet elegant. Alcohol is not too noticeable at this point.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats, cheeses, olives and fresh fruit.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
15% alcohol by volume.
