Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Elegant flowing aromas of baking spice and vanilla from new oak integrates beautifully. A nose of ripe black fruits, crème brûlée, plum and earth develops in the glass; the color is red garnet. The wine has amazing texture and transitions to a firm and very well balanced mouth feel; the finish is rich, layered and long. There is a distinct “expression” or “sense of place” in this wine. With proper cellaring, this wine should age well for ten years.
Ratings
95+ POINTS- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2017 Estate Reserve is based on 59% Cabernet Franc, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, and 5% Merlot and spent 23 months in new barrels. This powerful, super-rich 2017 offers up a dense purple color as well as notes of black fruits, smoke tobacco, gravelly earth, and a liquid rock-like sense of minerality. Full-bodied, dense and concentrated, it's not for those looking for instant gratification and needs 4-5 years of bottle age, but it's a brilliant wine in the making. 94 POINT- WA Wine Blog: A blend which changes each year, the 2017 edition highlights Cabernet Franc (59%) with smaller portions Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot. The herbal and red bell pepper tones entice as baking spices, cocoa powder and ripe boysenberry aromatics build in the glass. The palate is dense and intense, showing a seamless texture. Layers of toasty oak wrap around the ripe dark fruits with chocolate, creosote and mineral accents on the palate. Gorgeous in its youth, this massive and chewy ‘Estate Reserve; will cellar well for decades to come. If enjoying in its youth, be sure to give this a two hour decant. Drink 2020-2038
