2014 vintage notes
97 points Wine Advocate: "One of the gems in this terrific vintage, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Walla Walla AVA. It offers fabulous notes of black currants, chocolate, toasted spice and graphite. Full-bodied, deep, layered and gorgeously pure, with plenty of heft, it's an incredibly good, even profound, effort to drink over the coming two decades. Hats off to the team for this beauty, and if you can find it, buy it.
A collaboration between Chris Figgins and football star Drew Bledsoe, Doubleback consistently makes one of the top Cabernet Sauvignon releases in just about every vintage. This 2014 is unquestionably the greatest wine to date from this estate."
Previous vintage notes
The project of former NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe and Leonetti/Figgins winemaker Chris Figgins has come into its own as a majestic Washington Cab. We tasted this mid-January 2016 and it was awesome. Dynamite texture and depth, with ample structure to reward a decade or more of cellaring.
Wine Advocate 95 points: "A truly fabulous wine is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, which incorporates 7% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec, all of which was aged 22 months in 75% new French oak. This inky colored, sensationally textured and polished 2013 gives up classic young Cabernet notes of cassis, licorice, graphite, sweet oak and spring flowers. Full-bodied, pure and nicely concentrated, it has a solid kick of ripe tannin, and needs to be forgotten for 5-6 years. This beauty will have two to three decades of overall longevity."
