    (an 80/20 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot): Good bright, deep red. Pungent plum, redcurrant, strawberry and cranberry fruit aromas are lifted by pepper, mint and spices. Tightly wound and highly perfumed, with sweet red berry and spice flavors complemented by a cocoa powder element. Finishes firm and very long, with noteworthy aromatic precision. Baron is no longer buying barriques , just 600-liter Taransaud demi-muids and the occasional 12-hectoliter foudre .

    The red berry, cherry and herbal flavors slide effortlessly over the refined tannins and onto a long and expressive finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

    More edgy and fresh than the Widowmaker, with more up-front acidity, the 2010 Camaspelo offers a classic Bordeaux-styled bouquet of deep back currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with tobacco leaf, lead pencil shavings and hints of fresh herbs. Perfumed, complex and elegant, with a full-bodied, detailed and energetic profile on the palate, it is a beautifully balanced 2010 that will benefit from short-term cellaring and have 15-20 years of ultimate longevity. Drink 2017-2030.

  • In a state most often associated with rain and apples, vineyards occupy more land each year. Nearly all of this vineyard expansion has taken place in the eastern part of the state, where arid, almost desert-like conditions prevail. Winters are harsh and frost is always a threat, but such conditions, along with sandy soils, have allowed most Washington vines to grow on their own rootstocks—a rarity among wine regions throughout the world.
