A wonderfully fragrant blend, supple and loaded with berries and darker notes of licorice and coffee. This is sophisticated and European in style - meaning lighter alcohol and less sugar - but in return you get substance and grip. Though it's built for near-term drinking, there's nothing light or insubstantial here; and the mouthfeel is that of a much more expensive wine.

For the first time this popular blend contains no Yakima Valley fruit. The savvy blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah works like a charm. Outside of the Ste. Michelle brands, this is probably the most consistent, balanced and expressive red wine blend that is value-priced and widely available from Washington state. It's elegant, somewhat European in style, with light, polished fruit flavors of plum, berry and cherry.

Classic, rich and supple; this tastes like a far more expensive wine. It has a European polish, mixing plum, berry and cherry fruit with darker streaks of tar, coffee and smoke. The 13.5% alcohol is perfectly ripe and stylish, and the wine has good length, precision and complexity.

The blend is half Cab and half Merlot and a splash of Syrah; hence the moniker C-M-S. A full 20% of the fruit comes from the winery's vineyards in the Red Mountain AVA. It captures the complexity of far more expensive red blends, with a succinct mix of red fruits, mineral and fresh-roasted coffee-bean flavors. This and the winery's superb blended white wine may be the two best bargains in Washington.

Firm, grainy texture surrounds a nice core of cherry and spice flavors trying to poke through. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. Best after 2005.

Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah and Cab Franc are the C, M and S in the name. Strong roasted coffee scents set off the brisk entry; the syrah seems to juice up the fruit while the cabs punch up the tannins. There are a lot of smoky, roasted flavors, and the wine has a good solid grip. Very tasty and appealing.

On the light side, with pretty cherry and raspberry flavors lurking under a floral, peppery layer of tannins, finishing crisp. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2005.

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark ruby color. A hint of sweetness, medium plus body with well integrated tannins that linger on the long finish. A nicely balanced wine, with enough acid and tannin to make this an excellent compliment to many foods.
