Wine Peeps - December 5, 2012
Dark red. Nice nose with black plum, oak, and earthy aromas. Black plum, oak, and chocolate come through on the palate. Medium to full-bodied with lively acidity, medium tannins, and a medium to long finish.

Bright, deep medium ruby. Brooding, slightly medicinal aromas of blackberry, cassis and licorice. Essentially supple on the palate but less expressive today than the Cold Creek Merlot, showing a rather aggressive tarry oak component and a slightly overripe/underripe character to the flavors of black cherry, chocolate, menthol and herbs.

Rich and ripe, this dense, dry red offers sweet, somewhat jammy currant and blackberry flavors, with a touch of honey. Shows breadth and length, but needs time to settle down.
The Chronicle Herald (Canada) - February 16, 2012
Selection from the fabled Washington vineyard, Cold Creek, this huge wine shows well-developed vinosity on the nose, highlighted by characteristic varietal black currant and backed up by blackberry and subtle spice. Attractively ripe fine dark fruit in the mouth, with blackberry richness taking centre stage in the thickly textured body. Firm dry tannins, piquant black currant and chocolate kick in on the long finish. Well-structured and sufficiently concentrated to handle the high alcohol. Drink now but will reward further cellaring.
“Value priced and sooo good” Desert Entertainer - February 1, 2012
Aroma of dark, delicious, ripe plums, a hint of fresh oak wood chips. However, it features the softest of tannins, giving a smooth taste with just enough of a presence to marry well with beef, pork or pasta with tomato sauce. A wine that is, at the same time, gently tame and wild enough to be fascinating.
