Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, native fermented, aged in French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it’s a killer value that has lots of blue fruits, violets, graphite and leafy herbs in medium to full-bodied, concentrated, layered style. Savvy readers should buy a case of this and drink bottles over the coming 4-5 years, although I see no reason that it won’t keep longer either.

2014 K Vintners "The Beautiful - Powerline Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A new cuvee that's all from the Powerline Vineyard in the southern part of the Walla Walla Valley, the 2014 Syrah Powerline is all from the Phelps clone, was fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged in puncheons. One of the more bloody, meaty, iron-laced and savory Syrahs in the lineup, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a thick, unctuous texture, ripe tannin and a finish that makes your heart beat a touch faster. Give bottles a few years in the cellar and enjoy over the following decade. (JD)" (6/2016) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Hailing from River Rock Vineyard in the ...Read More »

2015 House of Independent Producers "La Mode" Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The House of Independent Producers is a project directed by Chris Hedges of Hedges Family Estate. The wines are meant to be good varietal representations at an easy to swallow price. This Cabernet Sauvignon is a leaner, less oaky style of wine that lets the grape shine through. It is vinified by Sarah Hedges Goedhart from 75% Sagemoor Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Red Mountain Syrah. It has a relatively small production of 4,196 cases and a snappy 13.5% ABV.

2013 Reynvaan "The Classic - In The Rocks Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "First made in 2012, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Classic comes from vines planted in 2008 and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in 40% new French oak, it sports an inky purple color to go with awesome notes of cassis, jammy blackberries, wild herbs and graphite. Full-bodied, fresh and elegant, yet with rocking concentration, this is a serious Cabernet that has the class to drink nicely in its youth, yet the balance, depth and structure to evolve for upward of two decades. (JD)" (6/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Plush and expressive, layered with spicy currant, cherry and floral ...Read More »

2010 Andrew Rich "Les Vignes en Face" Columbia Valley Syrah

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, dark ruby. Dark aromas of cassis, bitter chocolate, gingerbread and brown spices display a medicinal aspect but show little of the variety's meaty side. An intense, juicy midweight, showing a slight gamey quality to the flavors of cassis, blackberry, licorice and brown spices. I like the balance of sweet and juicy here. (ST)" (11/2013)

2002 Quilceda Creek Washington Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $230)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Almost as good as the 2003, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc that spent 22 months in 100% new French oak. Its youthful purple/ruby color is followed by gorgeously complex and intense aromas of wild herbs, exotic spices, caramelized beef, licorice and layers of sweet black fruits and creamy black cherry-like nuances. Full-bodied, rich and incredibly youthful, it opens up beautifully in the glass and is a total thrill ride of a Washington State Cabernet. I’d enjoy bottles over the coming deca ...Read More »

2013 K Vintners "Stoneridge Vineyard - El Jefe" Walla Walla Valley Tempranillo

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 100% varietal 2013 El Jefe Tempranillo Stoneridge Vineyard (23 months in 40% new oak) is another terrific example of this variety in Washington, and while there’s not many Tempranillo based releases out there, the ones that are, are seriously good. This 2013 gives up lots of darker fruits (black currants maybe), lots of spicy oak, toasted spice and licorice to go with a full-bodied, elegant, sexy profile on the palate. It continues to open up with time in the glass, and the tannin, while present, are incredibly polished and perfectly ripe. Feel free ...Read More »
