Guardian 2008 Stillwater Creek Vineyard The Wanted Cabernet Sauvignon-Cabernet Franc (Columbia Valley (WA))

This could be labeled Cabernet Sauvignon, as the proportion of Cab Franc has been cut from half to just 21%. It sees a lot of new French oak, and at this young age remains a tight, tannic, tongue-scraper. Ripe, primary black fruits—blackberry and cassis—are cloaked in toasty cracker flavors. Decant this one if you plan to drink it anytime soon. Paul Gregutt
