I absolutely love the 2014 Doubleback. A beautifully dark and saturated color that leads in to aromatics of raspberry, blackberry cobbler and cocoa powder. Digging deeper reveals sagebrush, menthol and rosemary that evolves and opens with grace over time - a completely entrancing wine. A large mouthfeel of dark fruit, dark chocolate and enticing length with perfect acidity for balance. Incredibly rich and lush, this wine is complex, ridiculously layered, and will age for years to come. Being almost entirely from McQueen Vineyard, the 2014 is a great testament to the strength of this site. Fractured basalt driven soils, wind that thickens the skins and develops tannin, and a higher elevation that retains the acidity and allows for more hang time - I couldn't be more proud of this wine.

Wine AdvocateOne of the gems in this terrific vintage, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Walla Walla AVA. It offers fabulous notes of black currants, chocolate, toasted spice and graphite. Full-bodied, deep, layered and gorgeously pure, with plenty of heft, it's an incredibly good, even profound, effort to drink over the coming two decades. Hats off to the team for this beauty, and if you can find it, buy it.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine is a blend of McQueen, Bob Healy and Lefore vineyard fruit, aged 22 months in 73% new French oak. Alluring aromas of macerated cherries, scorched earth, coffee, barrel spice and dark chocolate are followed by supple, focused, concentrated dark-fruit flavors. It brings some tannic heft that will benefit from time in the cellar. Best from 2023-2030.

Wine SpectatorWell-built but tightly wound, with expressive boysenberry, licorice and coffee flavors that lead to firm tannins. Best after 2018. 2,492 cases made.
