Starts of with pleasant berry aromas and flavors of blackberry, cherry and some chocolate notes, with light tannins, but leads to chemical notes, and disappointing finish.

    This wine had a very pretty color with a rich and dense mouth feel. We felt it would be a good fall wine.

    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.

    Young, bright, sharply defined, this brings berry and cranberry fruit in a blend of Caberbet Sauvignon, Merlot and a splash of Syrah. Hints of pepper and herb suggest this as a companion to, say, lamb sausage. Then, as the wine opens in the glass, cherry candy comes on strong. Very pretty.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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." -Winery
