One of the standouts in the lineup is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Ethos Reserve, which comes from a number of sites in the Columbia valley and incorporates 10% Merlot. Aged in 53% new French and American oak, this full-bodied, rich, unctuously textured and concentrated Cabernet is loaded with notions of currants, blueberries, smoked herbs, and licorice. Possessing low acidity, a plump, sexy profile and no hard edges, it can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade.
This has boldly expressed ripe dark berries and some autumnal leafy notes. Follows through to a palate that has assertive tannin in a punchy style. Dark fruits. Fine but sturdy tannins close it out.
Firm in texture, with a blanket of superfine tannins surrounding a pulsing core of blackberry, currant, dark plum and violet flavors that keep coursing through the long finish. Best from 2018 through 2023.
