2014 Passing Time Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon 3L
Black cherry, black raspberry, cassis, floral notes, and mocha on the nose. This wine is intensely structured and full bodied, with lively acidity. Red and blue fruits lead on the palate, with notes of cocoa, dried herbs, a hint of lavender, and fine-grained tannins on the long finish. A complex and pure expression of Walla Walla Cabernet, with just a hint of Old World savory complexity.

The Wine Advocate, June 2016
"Tasted out of barrel, the 2014 Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon sports an inky, opaque color to go with classic Walla Walla notes of smoked duck, currants, licorice and chocolate. Rich, concentrated, yet still fresh and lively, with present tannin and a great finish, it should be reasonably approachable on release yet cruise for 15-20 years in the cellar."
