2015 ANVIL Cabernet Sauvignon
Columbia Valley
93+
"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon ANVIL Dionysus Vineyard includes 10% Petit Verdot and was brought up in new French oak. Deep purple/plum-colored, with notes of smoked back fruits, sappy herbs, underbrush, and cedar, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a layered, ripe, powerful texture, building tannins, and a great finish. Hide bottles for 3-4 years and enjoy over the following 10-15 years or so." -Jeb Dunnuck, April 2019

2016 Façon Rouge Syrah, Columbia Valley Made from 100% Syrah, the 2016 Façon Rouge is a rich, ripe effort that gives up lots of smoked black fruits, asphalt, and licorice aromas, medium to full body, ripe, present tannins, and a good finish. It’s a big mouthful of smoky black fruit and best enjoyed over the coming 4-6 years.

Experience in Woodinville
My daughter and son-in-law invited us to taste at Forgeron in Woodinville last night, where they are club members. Our tasting included the 2014 Facon Blanc, which we purchased, 2014 Chardonnay, 2013 Merlot, the same year as Cab, and the ‘12 and ‘13 Anvil. I had received the ‘12 Anvil for my last birthday, unopened, so it was nice to taste. I was surprised by the consistency and distinctive excellence across the spectrum we sampled, not typical at most wineries. The staff was very busy last night but nevertheless found time to be personable, attentive, and make us feel welcome.

Experience in Walla Walla
Our group of 6 had a private tasting on a day the tasting room is closed. Marie came in just to accommodate our out-of-town guests. Following an informative tour we were royally treated to a lovely table setting complete with fruits, nuts, meats and French bread. Forgeron Anvil 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon was the highlight. Thank you Marie-Eve for an outstanding and very personal event.
