Wine EnthusiastBarrel-forward aromas of vanilla and toast are in front of herb and cherry. The palate brings a sense of polish and appeal, with the tannins bringing some squeeze on the finish.
Wine AdvocateI loved the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard, and it's 100% varietal from their estate vineyard in the Columbia Valley. Chocolate, smoked earth, violets, graphite and black and blue fruits all emerge from this beauty and it has plenty of mid-palate depth, good concentration and a great finish.
Wine SpectatorTaut and chewy, with modest blackberry and green tea accents, framed by gritty tannins on the finish. Best after 2018. 13,033 cases made.
