|Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The 2009 Snoqualmie Whistle Stop Red Cabernet/Merlot - 70% /30% proportions, has intense aromas of yeasty black cherry, lees, oak, charcoal, coconut, vanilla and subtle spice. It is a full bodied, dry, fruity wine; with good acidity, refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a long, oaky and coconuty finish. This big wine is food friendly, party favorite; though drinks well now, further aging will enhance it further - +1or 2 evolution potential; drink 2016-2024. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89-90 +2 pts – recommended for its value. Tasted Feb/14.

Full bodied wine with cherry and blackberry flavors wound around tight tannins and a touch of spice.
|Founded in 1983, Snoqualmie has been a leader in sustainable vineyard practices since the early 1990s. Their 2009 Whistle Stop Red is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. Rich aromas of blackberry, plum, cherry, cassis and oak are echoed beautifully on the palate along with some lovely earthy tones. The tannins are still present, but not dominating.
