Blueberries on the nose that translate through to the palate in this delicious Columbia Valley Cab that has a touch of Merlot and Cab Franc added in.  Extremely youthful at 7 years, the wine shows great potential and vibrancy.  Very similar in style to a Napa Cab, with tons of fruit up front and a long finish.  It is drinking nicely now, but I think it has yet to peak.  I reckon this wine will further evolve and last until 2018 at least.  I really enjoyed the mouthfeel; no harsh tannins, balanced acidity and good fruity taste that seemed to go on for ever.  I think this wine was underrated, it deserves 91 points.  It’s a 4 star effort in my books.
