2012 Figgins "Estate" Walla Walla Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1227897 96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Figgins 2012 Estate Red Wine is flat-out knockout stuff. Layered, gorgeously concentrated, full-bodied, and balanced, this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend gives up sensational notes of cassis, black raspberry toasted bread and sweet spice on the nose. Ultra-pure, elegant and silky, it has the texture to drink nicely today, yet will age effortlessly for two decades or more. Coming from the higher elevation, eastern edge of Walla Walla (1500-1750 feet above sea level), it spent 22 months in 70% new French oak and 30% in once used barrels. This is one of the top Cabernets coming out of Washington and readers should not miss it. (JD) 96+ Inner quote mark (6/2015)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Closed-up at present, this aromatic brooder has notes of red and black fruit, scorched earth and herbs, along with a floral top note. It has a mountain-fruit profile of firm, chewy tannins, tart acids and dense flavors. Time in the cellar is required to fully appreciate it. *Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2015* (SS) Inner quote mark (11/2015)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Taut, focused, generous and distinctive, splaying out plum, currant, espresso and spice flavors against nippy tannins. Comes into sharp focus as the meaty, complex finish lingers. (HS) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright red-ruby. Aromas of cassis, black cherry and cocoa powder convey a cool medicinal reserve; much blacker than Chris Figgins's Leonetti Reserve. Juicy and firm, showing excellent acid cut to the flavors of red and darker fruits, spices and herbs. Tightly wound and solidly tannic today, this wine will require patience. A second bottle of equal quality showed a more tactile texture and more of a blue-fruit character. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (11/2015)
