The Wine Spectator
Rated 93/100
2007 Efeste Ceidleigh.....$31.99
"Open-textured and welcoming, this brims with gorgeous currant, plum, boysenberry, star anise and cream flavors, lingering on the finish unencumbered by tannins or excess oak. A gorgeous wine that should develop with age. Drink now through 2017. 480 cases made. –HS
Amazing 2007 blend!!
2007 Efeste Final Final...$23.99
56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Syrah, 2% Mouvedre
"Our goal in blending two noble wine grapes together is to acquire the best attributes of each varietal and marry them in a complimentary and seamless way. Cabernet Sauvignon is the foundation of this wine, adding power, structure, richness, grip, and complexity. Syrah brings generous, juicy, ripe flavors and a spicy nature that blends beautifully with the Cabernet. We have added a touch of Mouvedre this year to add a little spice to this dynamic blend. Our minimalist approach to producing "Final-Final," using indigenous yeast during fermentation and not filtering or fining, adds to the "purity of fruit" that is the hallmark of Washington State grapes - you receive a wine that is both delicious and very complex. 58% New French Oak
100% Indigenous Yeast and MalolacticNon Filtered, Non Fined" -- winery
