Chicago Tribune 2010 Katherine Corkrum Cabernet Franc Walla Walla Valley

The Chicago Tribune July 12, 2014 By Bill St. John Washington's wines East of the Cascades, sunshine, arid soils and wind ideal for grapes http://www.chicagotribune.com/features/food/sc-food-0711-wine-washington-20140712,0,336889.column Review: "Another longtime favorite Washington winery, when I can afford it. The winery just never fails in its massively concentrated, but oh so lithe, red wines, such as this whisperingly herbal cabernet franc." 07/12/2014

92 points - The Wine Advocate 2010 Derby Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley

The Wine Advocate Reviewer: Jeb Dunnuck June 27th, 2014 Classic in style, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Derby Walla Walla is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 21 months in 75% new French oak. There’s a tiny amount of it to go around, but it offers beautiful black currant, sweet herbs, licorice and earthy qualities to go with a medium to full-bodied, concentrated and impressively structured profile on the palate. It’s not a blockbuster, but excels for its balance, elegance and seamlessness. Certainly approachable now, it will evolve gracefully for over the coming decade. I loved these latest releases from Spring Valley vineyard. They all show classic, elegant and balanced profiles that will evolve gracefully. These wines are not blockbusters and come across as slightly restrained at first, yet they blossom with time in the glass and are highly recommended." 06/27/2014

91 points - The Wine Advocate 2010 Frederick Red Wine Walla Walla Valley

The Wine Advocate Reviewer: Jeb Dunnuck June 27th, 2014 "A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc 18% Merlot and the balance Petit Verdot, the 2010 Frederick Walla Walla gives up bright black cherry, crushed flowers, spice and juicy black raspberry in a medium to full-bodied, balanced, supple style. Seeing 21 months in 65% new French oak, enjoy this elegantly styled blend over the coming 7-9 years. I loved these latest releases from Spring Valley vineyard.

89 points - The Wine Advocate 2010 Katherine Corkrum Cabernet Franc Walla Walla Valley

The Wine Advocate Reviewer: Jeb Dunnuck June 27th, 2014 "A medium-bodied, supple and surprisingly soft and forward wine in the vintage, the 2010 Cabernet Franc Katherine Corkrum boasts ample underbrush, wild herbs, spring flowers and chocolate-covered black cherry-like aromas and flavors. Made from 100% Cabernet Franc and aged 18 months in French oak, it should continue to drink nicely over the coming 5 to 8 years. I loved these latest releases from Spring Valley vineyard. They all show classic, elegant and balanced profiles that will evolve gracefully.

92 points - The Wine Advocate 2011 Nina Lee Syrah Walla Walla Valley

The Wine Advocate Reviewer: Jeb Dunnuck June 27th, 2014 "The 2011 Syrah Nina Lee (same blend and elevage), it offers more pepper, raspberry, violets and meatiness to go with a medium to full-bodied, focused and overall fresh and classy feel on the palate. It doesn’t have the back-end depth of the 2010, but is beautifully focused, elegant and balanced. I’d lean towards enjoy bottles over the coming 5 to 7 years, but suspect it will evolve nicely for longer as well. I loved these latest releases from Spring Valley vineyard.
