Vinous 88 points - (made by Kendall Mix, ex-winemaker for Corliss Estates): Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, cocoa powder and licorice. The palate offers smooth, sweet red and darker berry flavors and a saline element, with slightly edgy acidity and dusty, strong, chewy tannins providing a solid spine. Made from purchased fruit and a good value.
Winemaker Kendall Mix’s slap-shot-goal of a Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
|Our family has been working the land since 1898, when we started a lumber business in Aberdeen, on the coast of Washington State. We began with lumber and forestry, and have thoughtfully and gradually expanded our family business to include table grapes, wine grapes, and wine. Because we’ve had four generations in the family business, we’re interested in building things that will last, for the fifth, sixth, seventh generations, and beyond.
