97-99 Points - Robert Parkers's Wine Advocate

"Made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with 16% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Père de Famille is fresh, complex and floral with gobs of purity on the nose and picturesque aromas of spiced plum compote, blackberry reduction, succulent florals and elegant oak tones. Medium to full-bodied, the wine delivers a seductive and pleasurable mouthfeel with complex layers that show impressive depth and precision, with elegance and grace. Set to be released in March of 2024, this barrel sample is already begging me back for more." Anthony Mueller

    Quintessential Washington Cabernet Sauvignon. That was the quest that we embarked upon over twenty years ago, when the first vintage of Père de Famille, the Father of the Family, was resting in the cellar. The journey to find it has had us crisscrossing the state ever since, exploring vineyards from the Western Yakima Valley to Walla Walla, searching for superlative, expressive parcels. After two decades of stained hands, purple teeth, and dusty shoes, we think we’re on to something: a wine that expresses the powerful and penetrating soul of Columbia Valley Cabernet.
