The names stems from the original release of this wine back in the mid-90's. The vines used were from one of the younger blocks in the famous Champoux vineyard. Now the vines are over twenty years old and this wine is from the best barrels of the wine. An excellent value in Washington state Cabernet. Ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose has black cherries, spice, and slight cedar. Full bodied. On the palate, black cherries, spice and slight graphite note. Good balance. Nice depth. Medium tannins. Nice finish. This is drinking well now and should continue to drink well for another ten to twelve years. Nice on its own, this will work well with roasted fowl.
