Over the course of the last four vintages, the Columbia Valley has seen a shift from two of last decade’s cooler vintages in 2010 and 2011 to the two warmest vintages of the last ten years in 2013 and 2014. In 2014, an early bud break was followed by warm temperatures that persisted through the summer and well into the fall. Harvest started earlier than most vintages and finished 10 days earlier than normal. This added warmth has helped create wines that are intensely aromatic with very concentrated flavors.


Tasting Notes

Made from what is arguably Washington State's best vineyard for the variety, the Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a supple and richly textured wine. The nose is brimming with both red and black fruit along with chocolate and spice notes. It lingers over the palate with supple, well-balanced tannins. Expect a very long life in your cellar for this wine.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points- Wine Enthusiast:
"Vanilla, cocoa, graphite, woodspice and black cherry aromas lead to polished blackberry and cherry flavors in this Cabernet. It shows a fine balance and texture that piques interest, and a distinctive spice note that lingers on the finish." - Sean P. Sullivan (November 2017)
