Chandler Reach 2003 Parris Cabernet Sauvignon (Yakima Valley)

The Parris wines are the estate-grown reserves, and as the vineyard matures, the wines should gain in concentration and complexity. As before, the Cabernet shows clean, ripe but still young fruit, sweet and plump. Subtle notes are your reward if you are willing to give it some extra attention—finishing streaks of black tea, ground coffee, toffee, pepper and herb. Though 60% new French oak was used, the wine has adjusted well and kept its elegant balance. Paul Gregutt
