  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

    The two new releases, the 1989 Cabernet Sauvignon and the 1990 Merlot, are authoritatively flavored wines that are bursting with personality and complexity. The 1989 Cabernet Sauvignon is a dense, enormously rich wine, with a huge, spicy, tobacco, black-cherry, herb, and oak-scented nose, great intensity and saturation of flavor, as well as a chewy, marvelously well-balanced palate. Given the size of this broad-shouldered wine, it should be at its best by the mid-nineties and last through much of the first decade of the next century.

    Magnificently rich, concentrated and deep. An elegant wine that serves up ripe plum, cherry and currant flavors with spice, toast, vanilla and cedar aromas. Inspiring and as good as any from Washington.

  • 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.
