Winemaker's Notes: "The 2012 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays deep ruby color with aromas of black currant, coffee bean, green peppercorn, smokey charred meat, oyster shell, dried herbs. On the palate, the wine is round and supple with raspberry, wild strawberry, black currant, black cherry, leather, green peppercorn, firm tannins, and a bright, lifted finish."
91 Points: - "The Cabernet is stiffened up with small amounts of Petit Verdot, Cab Franc and Malbec, resulting in a firm, herbal, but very well-balanced Bordeaux-style blend. There's compact cassis fruit, streaked with light stem, earth and herb. This is a wine that should improve with bottle age through 2019." - Wine Enthusiast
90 Points "Fresh and vibrant, open-textured and appealing, with pure blueberry and currant fruit. A veil of fine tannins drapes over the gentle finish. Best from 2015 through 2020." -Wine Spectator
