Chris makes a single Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated red that’s brought up all in small new and used barrels. The 2014 Estate Red Wine is a blockbuster that comes from estate vineyards in Walla Walla and incorporates a splash of Merlot and Petit Verdot. Cassis, blackcurrant, roasted herbs, graphite and scorched earth all give way to a full-bodied, structured, impressively balanced red that has polished tannin (and lots of them), a core of sweet fruit and a great finish. Give it a few years of bottle age and drink over the following 10-15+ years.
This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot all coming from a single vineyard site. It's wound up tightly at present, with aromas of herb, dark fruit, spice and earth. The palate is big and bold, with rich fruit flavors and a firm lick of tannins. Best from 2024–2030. Cellar Selection
Impressive ripeness and freshness with violets, black olives and tarry notes across ripe plum and blackberry fruits. Sinewy tannins that deliver sleek power and carry ripe red- and black-fruit flavors long and even. Blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot.
Tightly focused and densely structured, with black currant aromas and concentrated espresso, olive and spice flavors, finishing with firm tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best after 2019.
The 2014 Estate Red Wine is a true representation of Figgins Estate Vineyard in its prime. Now entering the vineyard’s 15th leaf, this vintage really shows the site’s ability to produce world-class fruit. The wine is deeply colored and bursts from the glass with baking spices, pan-reduced brambles, blueberry, and dried fig. It is delightfully fresh with a deep current of ripe fruit that runs the course of the palate. The ultra-fine tannins provide for a long and smooth finish. The fruit is all from Figgins Estate Vineyard which is planted to several clones each of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Merlot
