Northstar 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

  • 93 points
  • Cheers - July 31, 2015

Cheers Magazine features the Northstar 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, its five star American style Cabernet Sauvignon wine round up.
A dense purple in the glass, notes of dark fruit, spice and toast rise from the glass. On the palate, the fruit is bright and clean, and the well-balanced finish lingers on for quite some times.

Northstar 2011 Merlot Columbia Valley

  • 87 points
  • The Wine Advocate - June 29, 2015

The 2011 Columbia Valley Merlot is slightly simple, with light plum and black cherry fruit, green herbs, menthol and floral notes. Medium-bodied, juicy and balanced, drink it over the coming 7-8 years. The blend here is 78% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot that spent 18 months in roughly 54% new French oak.

Northstar 2011 Red Blend Walla Walla Valley

  • 91 points
  • The Wine Advocate - June 29, 2015

Another outstanding Merlot, the 2011 Merlot Walla Walla has lots of dark fruits, roasted coffee, earth and a kiss of oak to go with medium to full-bodied richness, a balanced, plush mouthfeel and a great finish. A blend of 83% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cab Franc, Syrah and Petit Verdot, aged 20 months in 57% new French oak, it will evolve nicely over the coming decade as well.
