A bit buttery with base notes of wood, peppery spice lurking under lightly herbal and violet tinged crushed blackcurrant fruit framed with a toasty coconut nuance. Rich and velvety in the mouth, this is packed with purple berry fruit supported by supple but present tannins. The texture is a touch on the creamy side finishing with explosive fresh fruit wrapping in vanilla, mocha and light tobacco nuances. Long and fairly elegant. 91pts

Planted in 1973, Cold Creek Vineyard remains one of the most exceptional vineyards in the Columbia Valley. The weak soil at Cold Creek a silty loam - contributes significantly to the old vine intensity of the fruit.

A slight step up, with more complex aromas and flavors of brambly black fruits, liquid smoke, toast and spice box, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard is a 100% Cabernet that spent 21 months in 76% new oak barrels (58% French/18% American). From a hot site that was planted in 1973, it is a medium to full-bodied, balanced and textured effort that firms up nicely on the finish with ripe, polished tannin. Already hard to resist, it will nevertheless drink nicely through 2020. Drink now–2020.

Generous, open-textured and appealing, with cherry and rhubarb flavors, hinting at rose hip tea as the finish lingers deftly against fine tannins. Drink now through 2018.

Winemaker's Notes:

Cabernet from this iconic 40-year-old vineyard consistently delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. The 2010 Cold Creek Cab shows the approachability of the cooler vintage. The wine delivers black cherry, chocolate notes with typical Cold Creek weight and user friendly power. This is 100% pure Cold Creek Cab because this fruit deserves to stand on its own!
