Leonetti Cellar

Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

One of the best big Cabs. Certainly of Washington State it’s the best Cab in that state. Very smooth, deep rich purple hints of berries. 2016 vintage. Absolutely excellent. — a day ago

Spring Valley Vineyard

Frederick Estate Grown Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

Walla Walla Bordeaux-Style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (48%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (14%) and Malbec (8%). Totally opaque ruby color with purple highlights. Aromas of dark fruit, cedar, dried herbs and graphite. Abundant dark cherry/plum/currant/berry flavors with additional notes of those dried herbs, iron and wet soil. Ripe, plush, nicely structured and well layered. Smooth tannins and extremely long finish. Alcohol is noticeable out of the bottle but does calm down with aeration. — 2 months ago

Cayuse Vineyards

Cailloux Vineyard Syrah 2017

Needs a bit of air upon opening to blow off the reductive edge.
Shows juicy, ripe, creamy blueberry with a bit of toasted and a fresh, mineral streak.
The magic happens on the palate - brilliant energy & depth. Great, pure, juicy, fresh blueberries with rocky minerality. Sappy, velvety tannins, vibrant acidity, so fresh.
This is brilliant stuff - complex, elegant, quite serious. And so drinkable. .

En Chamberlin Vineyard Syrah 2017

Had been holding on to this for the last three years and decided to crack it open. Let it decant for just 30 minutes and did get better with time. Slight “funky” flavor that mellowed to be more cherry, spice and slight earth tones. Unique blend and one I would have again. — 2 months ago

Pepper Bridge

Estate Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing blackberries, black currants, plums, oak, licorice, light vanilla, tobacco leaf, earth, dark coffee, dark chocolates and black pepper.

Tangy finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 5 year old Cabernet Sauvignon based Bordeaux blend from Walla Walla Valley in Washington State is drinking very nicely now.

Elegant and rich. Fruit forward with lots of earth notes to compliment it.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years. Spicy and entertaining.

A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot. Aged in French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$80.

Camaspelo Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

As a die-hard fan of the Rocks funk, the profile of these wines are totally up my alley. That being said, even I admit that these desperately need food to be at their best. This was no different.

Followed over two days. Two hr double decant day one.

60/30/10 cab/merlot/Tempranillo. Up front, signature Cayuse funk (iron, savory whole cluster herbal profile). Tempranillo really shining. Nothing BDX about this. Thin, spicy, peppery. Black cherry but mostly underripe with a metallic finish.

Day two, I paired this with food (grilled chicken and beef) and this wine transformed in to a totally different wine. Much more heft and core of sweet, ripe fruit. Like a cool vintage left bank Bordeaux but without Brett. Floral, soft pipe tobacco, dark fruits, fig. The overly savory vibe of day one is non-existent on day two.

Perfect example of a wine that simply needs time to evolve for those who find the Cayuse funk too intense (I don’t mind it, but also appreciate it as a layer, not a main player in a wine).
