Seattle Magazine, 9th Annual "Best Washington Wine Awards", Summer 2014
"Amazing quality in an approachable and affordable red, this Merlot (79%), Cabernet Franc (17%) and Petit Verdot (4%) blend is a rich, dark wine with aromas of cherry liqueur, licorice and chocolate, as well as clean tannins and fine minerality. Winemaker and Managing Partner Marie-Eve Gilla is a boon to the Washington wine industry, with her excellent palate and delicate touch. She guides her wines, made in Walla Walla, through growth, harvest, fermentation and aging, producing wines that shine."
