"From the Champoux and Discovery Vineyards in the cooler Horse Heaven Hills region of Washington, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon HHH checks in as 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc that was aged 20 months in 80% new French Oak. With a deep, inky purple/blue color and smoking good notes of black fruits, charred earth, graphite, and chocolate, this beauty is full-bodied, incredibly balanced, with silky tannin, and a huge finish. It's an awesome wine." -Jeb Dunnuck Reviewed 4/5/2018
This wine is mostly Discovery and Champoux vineyard Cabernet along with pinches of Klipsun Merlot (8%) and Champoux Cabernet Franc (4%). The black currant, cassis, blackberry, graphite and scorched earth and herb grace notes intoxicate. The palate is ripe, textured, layered and generous but still tightly wound, with polished tannins and an extremely long finish. It is a Cabernet Sauvignon prototype – a complete standout that is delicious now but will have a long life in the cellar. Best from 2023-2035. - Sean Sullivan, September 2018
Impressive fruit presence with plenty of modern oak spices and meaty, barrel-derived complexity. The fruits are in the dark-berry and -plum zone. The palate has layered, smoothly ripe tannins that carry long. Blend of 88% cabernet sauvignon, 8% merlot and 4% cabernet franc. Drink or hold. James Suckling, May 2018
(Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon from Champoux and Discovery vineyards): Bright, saturated medium ruby. Alluring violet lift to the mouthfilling aromas of cassis, black cherry, violet, licorice and black olive. Silky, fine-grained and light on its feet, offering a plush, edge-free texture to the flavors of cassis, cocoa powder and coriander. Terrific, lightly saline vinosity and peppery lift here. A classic, elegantly styled Cabernet in an Old World style, finishing suave and very long, with noble tannins, restrained sweetness and terrific lift. Impeccably balanced wine. Drinking window 2018-2026 - Stephen Tanzer, October 2017
