Accolades for ANVIL

ANVIL 09 Red Blend

WA Wine Report deems 2009 ANVIL "Very Pretty, Elegant, Excellent"

"Draws you into the glass...A very pretty wine, a lot of elegance..."

Sean Sullivan, Washington Wine Report "WW Valley Report 2013, Part I", October 28 2013

 

 

The latest wines from winemaker Marie-Eve Gilla at Forgeron Cellars include some fascinating wrinkles.

The current wines also include a new, reserve level-style wine from Forgeron. Named ANVIL, the wine is 1/2 Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, & the rest a whopping 20% Petit Verdot. For the fruit, Gilla sources from exceptional sites including Pepper Bridge, Dionysus, & Boushey.

“It’s the most masculine of the wines I make!” Gilla says. While true, the wine still displays her deft, feminine touch.

"(Excellent) Draws you into the glass with complex notes of dusty chocolate, earth, herbs, cherry, vanilla, & kisses of licorice. A very pretty wine, a lot of elegance but still with some heft to the fruit & tannins. Give some time to open up. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon (Pepper Bridge, Dionysus), 30% Merlot (Boushey), & 20% Petit Verdot (Dionysus). Aged in French oak (64% new). 4/5 Stars"
