Rich on the nose with ripe, liquid cherry aromas, dried herbs, rich plum, fresh mushroom and smooth vanilla flavours on the palate. Warming at 14.5% a full-bodied red blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Syrah with wine grapes sourced from Horse Heaven Hills (45%) and the Wahluke Slope (22%) with the balance of grapes from the winery's Cold Creek and Canoe Ridge Estate vineyards. The wine was matured for 20 months in 51% new French and American oak barrel. Pair with roast duck or a roast breast of veal.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: barbecued steak, grilled lamb chops, hamburger, pork tenderloin.

|Jisun Hahn CAPS Certified Somm rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A well structured, deeply coloured wine with intense dark cherries on the nose. Layers of black fruit, cloves, dried earth and hints of sage wrap the palate. The flavours linger and the tannins are firm, balanced nicely with a tinge of brightness from the acidity towards the end. Enjoy this wine with New Zealand lamb chops topped with mint sauce and a side of potatoes au gratin.
|Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
A full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from Columbia Valley in Washington, the aromas are plentiful- ripe cherry, herbs, dark fruit, even mushroom. Cherries on the palate, smooth finish. A good value Cabernet that would elevate any barbeque or roasted fare.
