Buty 2007 Champoux Vineyard Red (Horse Heaven Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $55

Marvelously fragrant, with seductive scents of cherries, rocks and chocolate, which, along with the astonishing color saturation, suggest a wine of immense power. The 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc blend shows perfect ripeness with flavors of rock and acid preserved. This wine has it all—depth, blue and purple fruits, polished tannins—and probably a…

Den Hoed 2007 Andreas Cabernet Sauvignon (Horse Heaven Hills)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $80

Gilles Nicault, who oversees the Long Shadows portfolio, makes this pure Cabernet. If this had a Napa Valley label on it, it could sell for three times the price. The structure is full and fleshy, but with the vividly bright fruit that screams Washington State. Juicy acidity underscores the berries, cherries and plums; the generously applied new oak adds texture…

Buty 2006 Columbia Rediviva Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah (Horse Heaven Hills)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $48

This first estate-grown bottling of Rediviva is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Syrah. Amazing aromatic complexity grabs you and leads you into the dark interior of the wine, a riot of red and black fruits, moist earth, smoke, anise, herb and toast. Power and elegance combined, with the structure to age for a decade or more.

Buty 2007 Columbia Rediviva Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah (Horse Heaven Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $48

From the winery’s Phinny Hill vineyard, the Columbia Rediviva is 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 52% Syrah. Complex and satiny, it’s a riveting wine, inky and bursting with a sensuous mix of berry, cassis, mocha, loam, cinnamon and spice. Tremendous density and depth; despite its youth the wine curls around the tongue like thick smoke, showing more and more detail.

Quilceda Creek 2009 Palengat Red (Horse Heaven Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $90

Quilceda’s single-vineyard Bordeaux-style blend is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Merlot. This has fine grained tannins—not soft, but polished, ripe, and rich. Tasted prior to its official release, the wine was still pulling together all of the complex barrel-influenced flavors; it tasted delicious, with notes of bourbon-soaked cherries, along…

Andrew Will 2009 Sorella Red (Horse Heaven Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $75

Sourced entirely from the Champoux Vineyard, this Bordeaux-style blend is two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon. Yummy from the first sniff to the last sip, it’s packed with juicy berries and cassis, gracefully wrapped in layers of black olive, toast, clean earth and dark chocolate. Tannins are ripe and smooth.

Januik 2007 Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Horse Heaven Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $50

This includes grapes from Block One (the 1972 planting) and several other more recent plantings at Champoux; essentially this is pure Cabernet Sauvignon. It smells like a fine Bordeaux, still very young and tight, with well-defined layers of flavor. Black cherry, cassis, lead pencil, smoke and baking spices are tightly stacked and particularly apparent in the…

Andrew Will 2007 Champoux Vineyard Red Wine (Horse Heaven Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $53

A unique version of Andrew Will’s Champoux, this is more than half Cabernet Franc, with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot filling in the rest. Thick and tannic, yet perfectly ripe and almost silky, it coats the palate with black cherry, graphite, slate and a bit of chalk. All that said, the fruit more than holds its own against the terroir’s minerality…
