The Seattle Times - December 9, 2009
Here in Washington, artist labels are proliferating, but three of the first remain best of class: "... a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot — is loaded with sweet blackberry fruit, backed with black olive and clean, polished tannins..."

The 2006 Artist Series Meritage was sourced from Cold Creek, Canoe Ridge, and Wahluke Slope. This predominantly Merlot-Cabernet blend was aged for 20 months in mostly French oak. Purple-colored, it has an attractive nose of cedar, cinnamon, allspice, violets, black cherry, and black currant. Dense, ripe, and structured, this solid effort will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and offer pleasure from 2013 to 2026.

The 2005 Artist Series Meritage is composed of 57% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. Opaque purple-colored, the expressive bouquet jumps from the glass with notes of toasty oak, earth, blueberry, and black cherry jam. Supple, ripe, and layered on the palate, the wine has excellent depth and concentration and enough stuffing to evolve for 3-5 years. This classy wine should be at its best from 2012 to 2025.

The 2004 Meritage Artist Series is 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 11% Malbec, and 4% Petit Verdot aged for 20 months in 73% new oak. Purple-colored, it has a Bordeaux-like nose of pencil lead, scorched earth, espresso roast, black currant, and blackberry. This leads to a structured wine with a supple texture, layers of spicy flavors, plenty of complexity, and a 45+ second finish. It will evolve for 6-8 years and drink well through 2034.
