Wine Review: This pitch black colored red blend from Washington State opens a faint black cherry bouquet a hint of blueberry and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, smooth and rich. The flavor profile is a mild black cherry with a touch of licorice, oak and clove. The finish is dry and its mild and refined tannins fade away nicely. This wine would pair well with a filet mignon in the near term. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Artist Series is the ultimate sculpted wine created by blending the best of Washington fruit. The 2010 represents a larger percentage of Cold Creek Cabernet than in previous years (85%). The cooler 2010 vintage gave us power and elegance. The wine delivers black cherry aromas and spice notes with velvety tannins. Fruit from our Canoe Ridge Estate vineyard rounded out the blend for a layered, complex and harmonious wine.”
