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.
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.
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.
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.
