Region: Walla Walla Valley
89(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2009
($49; 46% cabernet sauvignon, 42% merlot, 8% malbec and 4% cabernet franc) Good bright, full red. Pungent oak notes of nutmeg and clove currently overshadow red fruits and tobacco. Then tougher and more backward in the mouth than the Perigee, showing good underlying sweetness but finishing with youthfully powerful, even tough, tannins. Clubb notes that this wine is always slow to evolve.
