    February 24, 2017 - This wine has faded since my note two years ago. The fruit is much less, strong alcoholic flavor. I believe this wine will be drinkable a lot fewer years than others seem to. The second day the wine was better balanced with more fruit and less harsh tannin. Still not great but perhaps earning its 88.

    December 23, 2016 - Gorgeous nose and just a little less generous palate. Cassis, black cherry and anise notes are prominent. Still plenty tannic and almost tight even, suggesting some years to come.

    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

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.
