WA 91Pts, V 91 Pts - Winemaker Notes - "Vibrant notes of blackberry, black currant, plum skin and dark baking spices. Concentrated and polished, with a touch of dried herbs, tea leaves and a dried berry potpourri. The fruits are ripe though poised with fresh squeezed berries, licorice, toast and raspberry intermingling with an intriguing hint of smoke and resin. The palate is polished and beautifully textured, with finely integrated tannins. An elegant and age worthy blend."
Accoding to the Wine Advocate "An impressive barrel sample, the 2012 Red Blend checks in as a mix of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc, that will all spend 16 months in 40% new French and American oak. Giving up plenty of creme de cassis, licorice, toast and raspberry-like qualities on the nose, this medium to full-bodied, juicy effort has a supple, soft mid-palate and building tannin that comes through on the finish. It has good potential and could possibly be outstanding if everything comes together once bottled. It should drink nicely for 5 to 8 years."
