#27 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016, 93 points Wine Spectator: "Firm and focused...a sleek core of blackberry, currant and plum flavors that keep singing on the expressive finish. This has room to grow. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022."
This is a classic Washington red blend and is drinking beautifully already. Drink half a case over the coming months and stash the other half for the next 6-10 years. You'll love having it on hand.
We blew through our initial allocation of K Vintners "potentially profound" The Boy. Thankfully, we've been granted access to another stash. In case you haven't heard about Wahsington's 2014 vintage, we are loving what we're tasting.

95-97 points Wine Advocate: "There's 300 cases of the potentially profound 2014 The Boy, which is mostly Grenache from the Powerline Vineyard in Walla Walla. Fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged in neutral oak, it offers sensational ripeness and depth in its meaty, olive, pepper, currant and kirsch scented bouquet. This gives way to a massive, concentrated and voluptuously textured Grenache that has a great mid-palate, ripe tannin and a finish that just won't quit."
