Tasting Notes
This enticing and deeply colored red wine shows a complex nose of baking spice, black olive and lead pencil integrated beautifully with aromas of ripe black fruits. In the mouth the wine is rich and elegant, showing subtle notes of herb and bright black berries. Integrated tannins enhance the texture and give proportion; the finish is complex, generous, and long. While this wine can be en- joyed now it will benefit greatly from additional cellaring and, with proper storage, should develop for ten years or more.
Ratings
94+ POINTS- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Series checks in as 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, and 1% each of Petit Verdot and Merlot, aged in 58% new French oak. Rock star notes of pure cassis and spiced red plums are intermixed with lots of cedar pencil, leafy herbs, chocolate, and spring flower aromas on the nose. These all carry over to the palate, where the wine is full-bodied, concentrated, and structured, with ripe, polished yet building tannins that emerge on the finish. As with the other 2017s here, the cellar will be your friend, and it's going to reward 4-5 years of bottle age. It's going to have 25+ years of longevity. 93 POINTS- WA Wine Blog: One of the iconic Cabernet wines made in Washington state, it was an incredible experience last summer to taste through all of the vintages (minus one) of this glorious wine. The new, 2017 edition is a gorgeous new wine that has a long life ahead of it. Layers of toasty oak mingle with Black Forest Cake, black tea and exotic spices on this expressive nose. The palate is full-bodied and wonderfully textured. Creme de cassis, anise, wild blackberry cobbler and shades of milk chocolate all come together on the palate. With great length and weight, the 2017 ‘Artist Series’ Cabernet Sauvignon will cellar well for decades to come. Drink 2020-2035
