Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

Though the 2001 was exceedingly tannic, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is superb. Its cassis liqueur, blackberry, and spice aromas lead to a juicy, fresh, hugely ripe personality of exceptional purity and length. Blackberries, black currants, and dark cherries vie with spices and oak for the taster's attention. A complex, highly expressive, vibrant wine with a delightfully long, suave finish, it is a candidate for drinking over the next 10-14 years.

($70; includes 11% merlot as well as bits of carmenere and cabernet franc) Deep ruby-red. Highly aromatic, floral aromas of black plum, cassis, mulberry, toffee, coffee and licorice. Round, lush and sweet on entry, then pliant and chewy in the middle, with captivating sweetness. Densely packed and structured yet light on its feet. A real essence of cabernet, and very long on the finish. This may well merit an even higher score with three or four more years of bottle aging.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Dense, focused and ripe, a spicy mouthful of black cherry, red currant and meaty flavors that last impressively on the well-formed finish. Oak is present but well-integrated. Needs lots of time to grow.

We had this with grilled New York Strips on 12/15/08. It was very nice with a wonderful bouquet of cassis, tobacco, blackberry, coffee, black cherry and bell pepper aromas. The palate was very smooth and dry with cassis, plum, black cherry, blackberry, tobacco, bell pepper and coffee flavors. The tannins were very rounded and well integrated...almost imperceptible. It had a medium 35 second finish. I really liked this.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
