About the Wine:
The 2004 Côte Bonneville represents the best expression of our DuBrul Vineyard, resulting from the unique events that shaped that vintage year. In January 2004, an arctic blast struck Washington State, severely damaging many vines. Our vineyard was spared. The cool growing season brought red berries, savory earth notes, and lovely balance. Austere in it's youth, it has developed more complexity and finesse with age.

Ratings & Reviews



94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"More rich, layered and concentrated, and also showing the age-ability of the wines, the 2004 Cote Bonneville is from a cooler year which was described by Hugh as similar to 2010. Made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot that was aged in 100% new French oak, it is still incredibly youthful and fresh on both the nose and palate. Offering up big minerality, cedar box, spice, cherry and cassis aromas and flavors, it is a medium to full-bodied blend that has a light, fresh texture, almost no evolution and a classically constructed, focused finish. A joy to drink, it should continue to evolve for another decade or more. Drink now-2023+." - Jeb Dunnuck (Jun 2013)

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Lithe, supple, refined and focused, playing its mocha-accented blackberry and cherry fruit against silky tannins. The finish rolls on and on without losing its graceful sense of elegance. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2014. 450 cases made." - HS (Oct 2008)
