    On another level, the 2010 Estate Red Wine is something to behold! A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon ' yet with smaller portions of Merlot and Petit Verdot ' aged in 75% new and 25% 1-year-old French oak barrels for 20 months, it has a decidedly dark fruit profile with Pauillac-like aromas of black raspberry, creme de cassis, coffee bean, graphite, mineral and toasted bread all emerging from the glass. Deep, rich and layered, with a full-bodied, concentrated and structured feel on the palate, it fleshes out beautifully with air and is up there with the creme de la creme of the vintage and region. It needs 2-3 years of bottle age (or more) and will have 20-25 years of evolution. Drink 2016-2035. Coming from an estate vineyard that's located on the eastern edge of the Walla Walla Valley, off of Mill Creek Road and at an elevation of roughly 1,750 feet, these wines are made by Chris Figgins (of Leonetti) and show classic profiles. As the score suggests, this is one producer not to miss!

    Dense and chewy, with a swarm of tannins around a soft core of blackberry and dark spice flavors, which emerge onto the finish and linger enticingly, hinting at floral and chocolate overtones. The tannins are worrisome, but this should reward cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
