"Shows structure and presence, with refined blackberry, black tea and stony mineral notes that build toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2026. 5,670 cases made. -Tim Fish" (WS)

"Dionysus fruit makes up the heart of this wine. The aromas don't sit quite squarely, which is a shame, as the dark fruit flavors on the palate are lovely. Sean P. Sullivan" (WE)

Winery Notes:
A stunning Cabernet from Washington’s oldest and most revered vineyards. Our Readers blend tips its hat to the exploratory readers of books and wine. Sourced from Conner Lee Vineyard’s old vines from ’87 and ’88 blocks, Dionysus Vineyards’ old block 18 and Elephant Mountain Vineyards’ high elevation superior Cabernet blocks, this powerful wine offers fragrant blackberries, mocha and mineral complexity, all built into this fantastic old vine Cabernet’s delicious style.
