Most definitely my Wine of the Night. Just incredible blend of fruit, acidity and tannins. So easy to drink, and with another year or so in the bottle, I can see this wine pulling down a 95 score from me. Outstanding!!

Excellent flavors of berry fruit, some smoke, and well-integrated tannins. Solid structure, with everything just working together nicely. Tied with Cottonwood Raya Jade Syrah for Wine of the Tasting! Outstanding - 93 points.

Drank at Lucy's Table in Portland, with K. Excellent blend. Tasted at winery over Thanksgiving, and had to order this bottle when I saw it on the Wine List. Enjoyed with mushroom risotto, while my date had a vegetarian 'meatloaf', that she was not too fond of. She said the wine saved her entree by bringing out flavor in an otherwise bland dish. Blueberries, smoke, and earth are the primary flavors here.

Decanted 1 hour. Beautiful dark purple in color, all the way to the edges. Nose of blueberry fruit, smoke and earth. On first sip, I get lots of blue and black berry fruit flavors, with very slight tannins that are nicely integrated with the fruit and acidity. The finish is long, and redolent of smoke, blackberries and a floral component. Always one of my favorite wines, I would imagine this would benefit from additional cellar time.

One of my favorites. Was first introduced to this wine on a tasting menu at Charlie Trotter's in Chicago. Very well balanced and smooth.

Winemaker's Notes:

37.9% Merlot, 20.7% Cabernet Franc, 41.4% Cabernet Sauvignon DuBrul Vineyard, Red Willow Vineyard, and Slide Mountain Vineyard from the cooler, western end of the Yakima Valley have provided the Merlot and Cabernet Franc fruit in this wine. The warmer Elerding Vineyard farther east gave us the tasty and ripe Cabernet Sauvignon. The Yakima Valley Red Wine is designed to showcase that a world-class Merlot and Cabernet Franc based Bordeaux blend can be obtained from this remarkable growing area. This is our signature wine. It speaks to our commitment to produce the best wines from the best grape varieties in each appellation, in this case - the bright berry flavor of the Merlot and fragrant notes of the Cabernet Franc are wonderfully framed with the structure and acidity of the Cabernet Sauvignon. All in all, this is a marvelously complex Bordeaux-styled red blend.
