Boss Block has transcended Cab Franc to become a purely gorgeous red wine which encompasses the best attributes of the variety while being so universally appealing. Full and rich, voluptuous and righteous. - Marcus
2014 vintage notes
97 points Wine Advocate: "Always made from 100% Cabernet Franc, Greer's 2014 Boss Block is, surprisingly, one of the more closed, backward releases in the lineup. With some coaxing, it yields serious notes of black fruits, damp earth, dark chocolate and leafy herbs. These flow to a rich, full-bodied wine that has an expansive, voluptuous texture, gorgeous mid-palate concentration and a great finish. Reminding me of the 2008 Cheval Blanc (it has a voluptuousness on the palate similar to the 2009!), it remains to be seen how well this cuvee evolves, but my money is firmly on it have two decades of longevity. And comparisons and adjectives aside, it's unquestionably the greatest vintage of this cuvee made and should not be missed by readers!
Wow, hold on to your hats for these latest releases from Sheridan's Scott Greer! This is a killer vintage from this Yakima Valley based estate and he's made one of the Cabernet Sauvignons of the vintage, probably the best Cabernet Franc I've ever tasted from Washington, and an insanely good Syrah that reminds me of Guigal's famed Côte Rôties. Bravo!"
2012 vintage notes
Wine Advocate 93-95 points: "Tasted out of barrel, the 2012 Boss Block is slightly darker in color and gives up classic smoked herbs, dried flowers and cured meat-like aromas and flavors that are grounded by a core of dark fruit. Full-bodied, rich and layered, with a stacked mid-palate and a gorgeous texture, this superb effort will have 10 to 15 years of longevity."
