Flight 1 (2 Notes)

  • 2007 Owen Roe Cabernet Sauvignon DuBrul Vineyard 94 Points

    USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Yakima Valley

    (2/16/2013)

    Decanted 2 hours. Exceptionally dark--nearly opaque with a thin purple/crimson rim. Classic DuBrul nose of savory herbs, dried flowers and dark black fruit. Bright, juicy and lifted flavors feature herb infused black currant, plum and dark chocolate that are both powerful and delicately balanced. The structure is elegant and refined. Clearly the best wine I've had from this unique site. Really very special. Drink now to 2020.

  • 2001 Andrew Will Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 92 Points

    USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Red Mountain

    (2/17/2013)

    Decanted 2 hours. Medium dark color with a bit of brick dust at the thin clear rim. Complex nose combines savory herbaceous elements with sweeter bright dark fruit. The flavors are very bright with out being too dry and there's a nice touch of sweetness to the slightly viscous palate. The tannins are fully absorbed. This continued to flesh out and improve that longer it was opened. Drink now to 2016
