The first vintage by Chris Peterson and his new Woodinville, Wash., operation is a stunner. The one-time DeLille Cellars assistant winemaker blended Cabernet Sauvignon (73%), Merlot (18%) and Cabernet Franc from Bacchus Vineyard’s Block 10, a section of Sagemoor that was planted in 1972. He also used grapes from highly regarded Red Willow. It’s a gorgeous wine with aromas of Vermont maple syrup, black walnut and facial powder, followed by flavors of dark chocolate, pomegranate and black cherry. The sturdy tannins are beautifully balanced with the rich dark fruit and sprinkle of cocoa powder. This is a wine that’s drinking beautifully now, and it will only get better for the next few years.
