Tasting Notes:
rated: June 27, 2013 , Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
92 points " Made from 100% Cold Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and aged for 22 months in 75% French oak, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Cabernet with plenty of creme de cassis, black raspberry, graphite, wild flowers and scorched earth aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with silky tannin, solid mid-palate depth and a layered, rich texture, it is already approachable and delivers loads of pleasure; nevertheless, it will evolve gracefully for over a decade. Drink now-2022. Located just to the south of the town of Walla Walla, these classic, elegant efforts are made by David Merfeld. Slightly understated, they are fabulous drinks that will age beautifully on their overall balance. (JD) (6/ 2013)" Best 2016-2022

90 points " Smooth and ripe, glowing with cherry compote, fresh blackberry and dusky spice flavors, with hints of sage and rosemary on the extended finish. Drink now through 2017. (HS) (9/ 2013)" Best 2015-2018

93 points "Consumers may find it difficult to differentiate this from the 2010 Ste. Michelle version of the same wine—both are 100% Cold Creek vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. But this one, bottled under the Northstar label, has more muscle, more power and more depth. Tannic, thick and darkly fruited, it’s a tightly-wound yet expressive effort, with complex flavors that move from black cherry and cassis into fig, tar, tobacco, espresso, dark chocolate and smoke. (PG) (3/ 2014) "
