($135; 69% cabernet sauvignon, 11% each merlot and petit verdot and 9% cabernet franc) Good deep ruby-red. Cabernet-dominated aromas of currant, red cherry, licorice, graphite and minerals. Juicy, powerful and penetrating, with bright red berry and mineral flavors. With a few minutes in the glass, this blend showed a much plusher texture and a building sweetness without going at all over the top. This very young and refined wine did not knock me out in the early going quite like the 2006 had last year, but it's long on potential and will need another look in seven or eight years.

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.
