    February 19, 2016 - The wine remains remarkably undeveloped. Very deep, dark, somewhat tannic and slightly medicinal with strong cherry flavors. Good wine but doesn't really move me

    January 13, 2016 - Impressed! For a 10 year old wine, this is still a fruit monster. Loads of tannin and structure. Great stuff

    September 23, 2015 - It is a bit over ripe for my taste. popped and poured and it did not appear to be early at all. I don't expect this to improve much over time. Smooth and full bodied. Bitter chocolate, not unpleasing. It just doesn't have any structure or finesse. Light on acid.
    The wine looks purple colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle.

    January 1, 2015 - Very good Washington Cab that went very well with appetizers and dinner or homemade spaghetti sauce. Soft tannins, good fruit. A good exemplar of Washington Cab.

Washington Wine Report

    (Corliss Estates Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley) An aromatic powerhouse with mocha, herbal notes, black cherries, black licorice, and spice box. The palate is dense and perfumed with rich waves of mouth coating dark fruit flavors accented by barrel notes and a silky texture. The finish lingers long and effortlessly. An absolutely beautiful, multiple swallow wine - among my favorites from this winery - that is drinking beautifully right now but has a long, long drinking window in front of it. The barrel influence is not shy here but has the fruit to match it. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. Stillwater, Bacchus, Dionysus, and Weinbau vineyards. Aged in French oak (80% new) for 33 months. 15.1% alcohol. 624 cases produced. Sample provided by winery.

    (Corliss Estates Cabernet Sauvignon Preliminary Blend Columbia Valley) Beautifully refined and balanced fruit and tannins. A plush, full wine that is all about power. Nose is still elusive but the taste delivers.
