This "Artist Series" Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from some of the finest and most highly regarded vineyards in Washington State. Each produces fantastic wine in their own right; when blended they produce extraordinary wine.

This enticing and deeply colored red wine shows a complex nose of baking spice, black olive and graham integrated beautifully with aromas of ripe black cherry. In the mouth the wine is rich and elegant, showing classic notes of pepper, herb and berries. Integrated tannins enhance the texture and give proportion; thefinish is complex, generous, and long. While this wine can be enjoyed now it will benefit greatly from additional cellaring and, with proper storage, should develop for ten years.

Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 4% Syrah


"Open-textured and inviting, with a pop of dark berry and sassafras flavors on a supple frame, finishing with firm tannins. This one sneaks up on you." -Rated 90, Wine Spectator

"This wine has deeply concentrated yet focused and spicy purple-fruit tones. Itís generously endowed with notes of tobacco, licorice, mineral and pepper. The highlights keep piling on through a finish that seems to run for several minutes. This bold wine is enjoyable now but should also cellar well through 2020. Editors' Choice" -Rated 94, Wine Enthusiast
