A nice blend. Not Red Mountain, but nice black berries, plum, chocolate notes. Cab Franc popped through.

Dark fruit with a strong red licorice palate. Slightly young and tight, perhaps a few more years and this becomes a gem.

New Cakebread project. If tasted blind I'd never guess Washington State. Really polished with no depth.

Surprisingly ordinary, if not an outright disappointment, for my first experience with Cakebread’s Washington venture. The fruit is blunted, like a deadened tennis ball... there’s no pop or verve or tension. Green peppercorns, tobacco, chocolate, spice and earth point to what could have been, but the fruit falls flat and the raw edge leaves it flabby.

V13. Very well balanced, very nice food wine. Soft violet and cedar nose. Nice round black cherry and currant fruit. Earthy finish.
