A hot and dry August and September in 2009 developed clusters of very small, loosely clustered berries. A blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot, this wine was sourced from four separate vineyards and spent 22 months in 100% new French oak. Winemaker Paul Golitzin describes it as 'graced with layers of blackberry, plum, and cassis fruit with complex floral nuances of violets, star anise, dark chocolate and Asian spices. The wine has an amazing texture and depth while maintaining great purity, elegance, and focus.'

99-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley might, in the long run, prove to be at an even higher level. This beautifully proportioned, fragrant Cabernet deftly combines elegance and power. Give it a minimum of 4-5 years of additional cellaring and drink it through 2034." (08/2011)
