WA 94+ Pts - According to Wine Advocate - "Looking at the top, Cabernet Sauvignon dominated release, the 2010 1:1 Columbia Valley incorporates slightly more Merlot than normal and checks in as 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc and 8% Malbec that spent 20 months in 100% new French oak. It offers fabulous purity in its cassis, licorice, toasted spice, graphite and lead pencil shaving like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, tight, focused and elegant, with integrated acidity and building tannin that comes through with additional time in the glass, this rock star Bordeaux blend will have upwards of two decades of longevity."
According to Wine Spectator - "This chewy, tannic style weaves a grilled red pepper note through the dark berry and dark roast coffee flavors, finishing with persistence. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Best after 2015."
Tasting Notes - "Sweetly ripe red fruit out in front of black currants, plum and raspberry Grenache. A complex mixture of ripe fruit and hints of Asian spice box, vanilla bean and a black tea potpourri. Great persistence and depth with freshness and a heady mixture of ripe red fruit and a savory herb distillate. Texture, polish and presence with fine tannins and an understated structure to last for decades." 15.2% ABV.
