Wine Advocate | Rating: 96I loved the Merlot dominated 2013 Flying Pig, and it offers full - bodied richness and depth, as well as a stacked mid - palate, to go with classic plum, cassis, wild herbs and dried flower nuances. There's tons of dry extract here, and the tannin is notable, yet ripe, all of which make me believe it will be long lived. Like the 2012, short - term cellaring will be the name of the game.Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Supple and velvety, layered with aromas and flavors of red berry, black currant, floral and spice that glide easily into a long finish against nubby tannins. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2020. 206 cases made.Author: Harvey Steiman
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.
