Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91(+?)

Full red-ruby color. Sexy aromas of raspberry, mocha and roast coffee. Juicy, sappy and sweet, with excellent acidity giving shape and definition to the cassis flavor. Very nicely integrated, subtle oakiness adds complexity. Finishes with a whiplash of dark berry flavor. This is less obviously opulent than it was when I tasted it immediately after the bottling last summer, but this superb cabernet offers terrific potential.

The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon's bouquet offers aromas of toasty oak and spice. This mouth-coating, explosive wine is crammed with a myriad of spices, jammy blackberries, sweet cherries, and cherry syrup-drenched fruitcake. This is a hedonist's delight, yet it has loads of tannin that provide a firm, tight, structured finish.

A ripe, round and graceful Washington Cabernet. A pretty wine that's generous with its plum and black currant flavors, swirling with jasmine, rose petal and vanilla flavors, and echoing fruit, spice and floral notes on the long, supple finish. 1,793 cases made.

Very Nice. Ripe red fruit still prominent with cassis and spice on the palate. The tannins are fully resolved. Long finish. Drink now.

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.
