Saturated ruby color. Black cherry, black raspberry, smoky oak and tobacco on the nose. Fat, sweet and sappy; fully ripe black fruit flavors fill the mouth. Not a huge wine but lush and accessible. Even tannins are buried in fruit. Few Washington winemakers have thus far produced cabernet with texture so suave or tannins so fine.

Ripe and clear, with nicely focused blackberry and currant flavors and a trademark thread of spice and vanilla, nicely subdued. Fine-grained tannins don't get in the way, letting the lovely fruit flavors emerge generously. 2,200 cases made.

About This Producer


Gary Figgins, owner-winemaker of this oldest winery in the Walla Walla Valley, turned his winemaking hobby into a career in 1977 after years of amateur experimentation in is cellar. He is respected for being entirely self-educated in winemaking and having an obsessive attention to detail, going so far as to choose specific logs for his barrel staves years in advance. Despite his overwhelming success, total production of his Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, blends, and Riesling remains limited.
