95 points Wine Advocate, Highly Recommended by Marcus and Andy: "
The finest wine I’ve tasted from winemaker Anna Schafer, the 2013 Artist Series McCool Blend checks in as a mix of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot. Absolutely gorgeous, with an ethereal bouquet of crème de cassis, spring flowers, tobacco leaf and hints of lead pencil, this beauty hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, beautiful purity, fine, polished tannin and a great finish. It’s not a powerhouse, but it shines for its purity, length and sheer pedigree. It should be at its best from 2018-2032." - WA
We highly, highly, and dare we add highly recommend aMaurice's new red blend, McCool. Sure, it received a fantastic review from Wine Advocate but you can trust us, the review is entirely deserving.
Gorgeous Washington red wine. Something we particularly love about the McCool is the purity of fruit, unadorned by excessive oak or tannin, or anything. It sounds so simple but to taste it in action is to have the revelation. aMaurice winemaker Anna Schafer's style reminds us of Andrew Will, and we can think of no higher compliment. We tasted two bottles, one that was just opened and one that had been open twenty fours hours; we see no reason to delay gratification (cellar) but it clearly has the goods to age for well past a decade. - Marcus and Andy
