This wine is outstanding. Scott G is making some of the best wines out of Washington right now. Cab Sauv, Cab Franc combo, Yakima Valley - 96 WA. Smoked fig, casis liqueur, mushroom, vanilla, Bordeaux structured, with a style beckoning the Napa fanatic. Not a lot of wines getting consistent 96 critiques for $60.

Would mistake this for an old world wine. Has notes like a fine graves wine including burning smokey ember and tar intermixed with cassis and plum. Fruit takes a back away to structure here.

These guys never sease to impress! The 2013 in my opinion is even better than their previous 96pt 2012. Absolute heaven in the nose; espresso, graphite, vanilla bean, amd dried cloves. The pallet is very generously layered exhibiting a plethora of mulled red and black berries, black plum, cocoa, nutmeg, and kirsch; all structured by ample, rich mouthfeel and a lingering feminine finish. Washington, you've done it again!

Wow! Powerful aromatics of graphite, ripe blueberries, and plums. Plenty of black fruits with spices, coffee and mouth filling chewy tannins. Too bad this is my last bottle. It tastes like it could be good for a few more years.

Excellent wine.. How does this guy keep doing this?! Big body and even bigger backbone.. 25% cab franc shines through with some green pepper, structured tannins, ripe plum, blackberry and lasting finish.

2006 vintage. Bought these as futures based on a barrel tasting. Thought it had great potential and I was right. Unctuous and powerful.
