Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The Figgins 2012 Estate Red Wine is flat-out knockout stuff. Layered, gorgeously concentrated, full-bodied, and balanced, this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend gives up sensational notes of cassis, black raspberry toasted bread and sweet spice on the nose. Ultra-pure, elegant and silky, it has the texture to drink nicely today, yet will age effortlessly for two decades or more. Coming from the higher elevation, eastern edge of Walla Walla (1500-1750 feet above sea level), it spent 22 months in 70% new French oak and 30% in once used barrels. This is one of the top Cabernets coming out of Washington and readers should not miss it."

Wine Enthusiast:

"Closed-up at present, this aromatic brooder has notes of red and black fruit, scorched earth and herbs, along with a floral top note. It has a mountain-fruit profile of firm, chewy tannins, tart acids and dense flavors. Time in the cellar is required to fully appreciate it. Let it be until at least 2020 but it should have a good 15 years beyond that."

Wine Spectator:

"Taut, focused, generous and distinctive, splaying out plum, currant, espresso and spice flavors against nippy tannins. Comes into sharp focus as the meaty, complex finish lingers. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2017 through 2022."
