This is rock solid, everything-in-its-place Washington red wine. Beautiful black fruits are immediately inviting, adding accents of dark chocolate and dried thyme through the velvety finish. Showy right from the bottle and still drinking superbly four days later; buy some to drink now and some for the cellar. 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot. - Marcus

This wine is a blend of several different clones of Cabernet grown on the same hillside at Stillwater Creek vineyard; all planted in 2001:
Clone 191 is a French clone from Bordeaux that is known to produce wines that are "colorful and well structured" and we really like the concentrated black plum character it adds to the Arctos blend.
Clone 4 is the heart of the Arctos blend. It has classic Cabernet aromas of black cherry, black berry fruit, black olive, and herbs. It is savory with plush tannins.
Clone 8 is very widely planted in Washington and tends to produce wines that are consistently ripe and fruity with medium tannins.

These clonal differences bring complexity and nuance to the blend and the Petit Verdot adds blueberry and violet and beautiful purple-black color.
