Figgins Estate Vineyard is the highest elevation Bordeaux variety vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley. Our position up Mill Creek lends itself to ideal autumn ripening, even in especially warm years like 2015. This vintage was the earliest harvest in our history, but retained a delicious balance between acidity and tannin due in part to the high elevation. This wine is what I imagined our exceptional site to be capable of producing when I bought the land and designed the vineyard over 15 years ago. Rich in color, the wine entices you with an intoxicating nose of baking spices, cherry compote, wild roses, cassis and caramel apple. Layer upon layer of perfectly ripe red and black fruits and silky tannin engage the palate. I have not been this excited about a FIGGINS release since my inaugural vintage in 2008!

Taut, focused, generous and distinctive, splaying out plum, currant, espresso and spice flavors against nippy tannins. Comes into sharp focus as the meaty, complex finish lingers. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2017 through 2022. 2,646 cases made.

Closed-up at present, this aromatic brooder has notes of red and black fruit, scorched earth and herbs, along with a floral top note. It has a mountain-fruit profile of firm, chewy tannins, tart acids and dense flavors. Time in the cellar is required to fully appreciate it. Let it be until at least 2020 but it should have a good 15 years beyond that.
