This is rather restrained on the nose with toasty, cedary wood spice notes over a bed of black cherry and black currant fruit with a hint of blueberry. Big and rich in the mouth this has tons of fruit without being overtly fruity, in fact the fruit sneaks up on you slowly revealing sweet black cherry pie filling notes backed up by gentle suggestions of tomato leaf and black spices. The acids are very well covered and the tannins add a subtle tactile impression on the mid-palate as well a s a bit of spice on the backend. There’s a little toasty nuttiness on he finish as well as a hint of roasted coffee bean all joined by cassis fruit. This is a big, opulent wine yet it remains very finely balanced and offers lovely complexity. 92pts

Not bad. Washington State is typically not known for their Cabernet. This is CSM's higher end....and it's not bad. It opens nicely after an hour in the decanter. But yet still a tad too earthy for my taste.

A dark ruby-colored wine, moderate and balanced tannins, fruit, and sugar are pleasant on the palate without being too overpowering. Vanilla and cherry on the nose.

Nice, soft cabernet. Very approachable and balanced. A little red fruit that is typical of Columbia Valley, but this is a very universally appealing style of wine. A bit medicinal. The wine does not develop much in the glass.

Quite possibly the best cabernet under $20. Amazing. Washington state goodness.

Rich notes of chocolate and cherry on the nose. A touch of ethanol, but the bottle had just been opened. Nice minerality with licorice and fennel notes. Very jammy, in fact maybe overly so. An intense blueberry finish.

Still hot! Its 2004 so I was hoping the edge would fade by now. They claim its 13.7%, but there's a generous margin of error here... Still would benefit from standing or decanting to allow the ethanol to blow off. Once you are past the heat, however, this is a very decent wine. Very fruity, rich with good structure to balance it. Overall I'd say the fruit is a bit overripe and comes over slightly medicinal, but its not too potent. Still a good buy, and a good pairing with hearty dishes: steak, pies, curries etc.

    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.

    Cabernet from this iconic 35-year-old vineyard always delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. This is a dense wine with great aging potential.

    The word Ethos means character in Greek, the distinctive spirit of a specific culture, movement or philosophy. This describes perfectly Bob Bertheau s vision - limited production wines of unique style and complexity that integrate his image of bold Washington fruit with subtle but intense European-style complexity and structure.

    winemaker's notes: A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Syrah and 1% Malbec. The Indian Wells Cabernet is our warm climate ripe, jammy New World style of Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine really typifies the Wahluke Slope region with up front, dark fruit aromas and flavors with hints of vanilla. Vineyards in the area are more than a decade old now and showing character and complexity. Pair with stuffed peppers, bleu cheese, duck, beef, veal, lamb and dark chocolate. Herbs such as mustard, paprika, rosemary and thyme also pair nicely as well as spices such as allspice, clove, ginger, mace and nutmeg.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Ethos Syrah represents the ultimate combination of power and softness. The wine offers a rich mouthful of dark blackberry fruit with hints of earth among layers of complexity and a sweet finish. The fruit came from the Wahluke Slope and our Cold Creek Vineyard. Eastern Washington’s soil and climate are a great match for growing amazing Syrah. Try this wine with rack of lamb!
