94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009

($55; 62% cabernet franc, 31% merlot and 7% petit verdot) Good full red with ruby highlights. Knockout nose combines sappy black cherry, redcurrant, black tea, mocha and rose petal. Wonderfully intense but light on its feet, with enticing floral lift and outstanding verve to the red berry and brown spice flavors. Quite horizontal on the back but without any impression of weight. Finishes with very refined tannins and lovely lavender lift and persistence. A great showing-and all the more remarkable considering that Ben Smith and Gaye McNutt's vineyard on Red Mountain was only planted in 2004. There are any number of powerhouse Bordeaux blends being made in Washington today, but very few wines with this degree of class.
