PASSING TIME Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla Valley 2020

About ⅔ of the fruit comes from the Seven Hills and ⅓ from the Pepper Bridge vineyards while aging on about 60% new French oak. Medium to dark purple core, with a neon pink rim in the glass, this is another stunning effort from Chris Peterson. Darker and richer than its siblings, with bountiful aromas and flavors of crushed blackberry, cassis, Thai spices, dark chocolate, candied violet, pencil shavings, wet earth, and a hint of eucalyptus - this is going to need a few years in the bottle to come around. Powerfully structured and incredibly tannic with a dark fruit core, it finishes strong and long. Better in 2025. $94 2025-2040 95 Points
