Soos Creek Red Bordeaux Blend Horse Heaven Hills Champoux Vineyard 2002

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Chocolate, tar, blackberries, violets, and dark fruits are found in the aromas and flavors of the uncivilized 2002 Champoux Vineyard (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc). Though pure, ripe, and dominated by fruit, this super-concentrated effort is more reminiscent of a barrel sample than a bottled wine. Hugely powerful, it will require patience. Projected maturity: 2010-2020. ** Only 4 in Stock **

We established our winery in 1989 on the belief that the vineyards of Eastern Washington were capable of producing world-class vinifera wine grapes. The recent accolades for Washington state wines certainly confirms the extraordinary terroir of our vineyards. By starting our winery at a relatively early time in the Washington wine industry, we were able to source our grapes from a few of the best and oldest vineyards in the state. We believe that blending wines made from different grape varieties and sourcing grapes from different vineyard locations will generally make a more balanced wine with better flavor complexity. However, in years when the wines of a specific vineyard are especially outstanding, we may also produce vineyard-designated wines. We believe that exceptional wines should age well. Therefore, most of our wines are built around a tannic backbone that has proven to give them a long life. Read less
