  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    Refined, elegant and expressive, popping with juicy currant and blackberry fruit and shaded with hints of allspice, black pepper and bay leaf, lingering harmoniously on an open texture. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

    The 2011 Reserve is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot and 7% Cabernet Franc that spent 20 months in once-filled French oak barrels. Offering more black cherry, black currant, licorice, tobacco and spring flower-like qualities on the nose, this serious 2011 has fantastic mid-palate depth, integrated acidity and a medium to full-bodied, seamless and elegant personality that's hard to resist.

    Seemed shallow with a tannin aftertaste. Disappointed.
    Author: Mike and Kate Wine
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.
