Current & Past Scores
97 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate) (v2016) “An 80/20 split of Cabernet and Syrah from a site in the Walla Walla Valley, the 2016Cabernet / Syrah The Creator Powerline Vineyard offers lots of bloody black and blue fruit, black olive, beef blood, and pepper herb aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, rich, and concentrated, it has silky tannins and shows surprising elegance and finesse on the palate. It’s a “Wow” wine that should be snatched up by readers.”
92 Points, James Suckling (v2016) “This is a profoundly long yet elegant blend with an abundance of rich dark fruit that carries bold but contained into the palate. The cabernet leafiness pervades the finis hand there’s impressive freshness here. A blend of 80% cabernet sauvignon and 20% syrah. Drink or hold.”

Vintage 2017 was a fantastic year for making wine with a cool spring and a fair amount of rain. Washington had an ideal spring for healthy vines. The moderate temperatures during summer were perfect for small clusters and yet delayed veraison into the fall where we had a consistent ripening season that allowed us to hang the fruit for perfect tannin and flavor without losing acidity or acquiring too much alcohol. Overall it was a vintage to remember.
