"Like the CVR release, the 2013 Palengat Vineyard is slightly darker than its 2012 counterpart and is one serious barrel sample. Incorporating more Merlot from the Wallula Vineyard (which largely came on line in 2012), the blend in 2013 is 58% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc. It gives up tons of blackberry and cassis fruit to go with licorice, chocolate and wild herbs aromas and flavors, Full-bodied, voluptuous and concentrated, with terrific purity of fruit, it will be reasonably approachable on release and drink well fro 10-15 years."

"Healthy dark red-ruby. Much less extreme on the nose than the CVR blend, showing captivating floral lift to the aromas of cassis, blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate and licorice. Broad, deep and slightly exotic, with its strong dark berry flavors complicated by notes of Cuban cigar leaf and minerals and Franc-driven floral character. Finishes with terrific energy and lift. For the second straight vintage, this Merlot-dominated wine is a huge success."
This exotic Merlot-based wine displays beautiful layers of aromatic plum and black cherry fruit with nuances of anise, soy, graphite and minerals. It has stunning purity and delineation, with superfine tannins.
