A majestic Cabernet-led wine. Black currant, black olive, tobacco leaf, No. 2 Pencil lead, terrific structure, classic in presence, cedar cigar box and damp earth. ALL HAIL THE CREATOR.

The 2017 Cabernet / Syrah The Creator Powerline Vineyard doesn't match the 2016 yet is still a brilliant blend (75/25 Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah) sourced from a site on the southern side of the Walla Walla Valley. Loads of jammy blackberry and black cherry fruits as well as hints of chocolate and peppery herbs emerge from this purple/plum-hued 2017. Offering full-bodied richness, a layered, seamless texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish, it's another sexy, pleasure-bent effort from this team that can be drunk any time over the coming 10-15 years.

Structured, with a simmering backbone, framed by currant, black olive and crushed stone accents that build richness toward medium-grained tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Best from 2022 through 2029. 1,491 cases made.

Dark red with ruby tones. A whiff of matchstick reduction quickly dissipated to reveal pure scents of blackberry, licorice and black olive tapenade. Very concentrated sweet/savory wine with lovely inner-mouth lift and spiciness (probably from the 67% new thick-staved barriques). Suave and fine-grained but needs time to reveal itself. Incidentally, I moved up my projected peak drinking planes for this wine as well as the Ovide and Roma as the wines mellowed considerably with 24 hours in the refrigerator--without losing their shape. (this bottling used to be a mixture of Jack's and River Rock vineyards, before Powerline was planted in 2012)
