($100; cabernet sauvignon with 16% merlot and 13% petit verdot, all estate fruit; aged in 70% new French oak) Good deep, bright ruby. Superripe aromas of blackcurrant, black cherry, roast coffee, bitter chocolate and sexy oak. Rich, dense and sappy, with lovely verve to the sweet, intense dark fruit flavors. Wonderfully horizontal wine, saturating the palate with fruit on the dense, very long finish. This already offers great appeal but I'd give it some time to develop. The pH here, says Figgins, is 3.7, which is quite healthy in the context of this vintage.

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.
