Wine and Spirits Magazine, February 2012
“Carmérère leads this blend with its smoky, leafy scent, and driving acidity. It adds complexity to the Cabernet (50%) and Merlot (25%), with spicy, smoky dark cherry flavors, while its granular texture and leafy tannins add grip.” 

 

Seattle Wine Awards

OUTSTANDING
by Great Northwest Wine

"Yakima Valley winemaker Robert Smasne continues to show his skill with Carménère in this blend of Bordeaux varieties that leads with Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (25%). The herbal notes that appeal to many fans of Cabernet Franc and Carm leap out of the glass with hints of oregano and green peppercorns, but there’s a rush of supporting aromas akin to blackberry jam, dried cherry, vanilla and shaved dark chocolate. On the palate, the herbaceousness gets pushed well into the background as the focus is on sweet barrel tones with ripe black currant, Van cherry and raspberry flavors. The structure is rich, bold, beautiful and easy to enjoy with lingering food-friendly acidity. Serve with short ribs, London broil or meatloaf."
