Scores & Tasting Notes

Dark. Brooding. Delicious. Lying in the glass, black fruit greets the taster along with leather, coal, campfire ash, charred meat and black tar. Round. Profound. Magnificent. – Winemaker Charles Smith

96 Points – Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)

“Coming from the Walla Walla Valley and vines planted in 1996, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Jack’s Vineyard Collection has a crazy, exotic bouquet of black and blue fruits, blood orange, and leafy herbs. This gives way to a full-bodied Cabernet that has loads of fruit and richness, yet stays balanced and vibrant on the palate, with nicely integrated acidity and a great finish. It literally makes you salivate. Give bottles another year or two and it’s going to evolve for over a decade.”

92 Points – James Suckling

“A strikingly pure cassis nose with sappy fresh-herb notes, too. The palate has a sleek, polished and sturdy edge with greenish, leafy notes and a fresh, sappy finish. Drink or hold.”

94 Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (v2015)

“The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Jack’s Vineyard offers up rich aromas of red and blackcurrants, espresso roast, burning embers and brown sugar. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, rich and lavish, with an ample core of fruit, melting tannins, loads of savory complexity and a sapid, saline finish. It’s a characterful Cabernet Sauvignon to follow for the coming decade.”


Jack's, Walla Walla Valley, Washington State Red Wine
(100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13.5% Alcohol)
Stony, ancient riverbed, located on the floor of the Walla Walla Valley. Very cobbly, Freewater, loam-cobbles over gravel over sand, dried riverbed. In the rocky soils of this part of the valley, low vigor keeps flavors concentrated. Planted in 1999.
The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.


The 2016 vintage started early and warm in Washington State. When summer arrived, the season saw cooler evenings that helped retain acidity, extended the growing and ripening period into September and October. This allowed the fruit to gain more complexity and deeper charm without sacrificing the acid or producing higher alcohol content. The vintage has created deeply rich and focused wines that we will be able to enjoy for a long time to come
