- Efeste Final Final Columbia Valley 2010 Product #28138 (In Stock)
Efeste keeps turning out fascinating, delicious, and wonderfully food-friendly wines from their vineyards in Washington's Columbia Valley. Final Final is one of the few blended wines they make, a marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon (59%) and Syrah (41%), all aged in French and American oak. Cab provides the backbone of the wine, delivering structure, power, and black currant fruit while the Syrah adds juicy black fruits and a touch of spice. Fantastic steak and grilled meat wine!
"Another superb effort and a rocking value, the 2010 Final-Final is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Syrah, from a variety of vineyards throughout the state, that was aged in one-third new French oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Loaded with notions of mulled spices, tobacco, smoked herbs and black currants, it is a full-bodied, super rich wine that possesses remarkable purity and precision for a wine of its size. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years. Drink now-2018.:Wine Advocate 91 points
"Broad and generous, with focus to the black currant, blackberry, licorice and herb flavors, persisting against crunchy tannins as the finish expands. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Best from 2016 through 2020. 3,711 cases made"Wine Spectator 91 points
- Efeste Ceidleigh Syrah 2010 Product #26784 (In Stock)
"Deep bright ruby. Slightly porty aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, licorice and chocolate, lifted by a violet nuance. Seriously concentrated and chewy, with the high-toned porty character carrying through in the mouth. Large-scaled, solid and sweet, showing a lot of baby fat today. Finishes with huge but ripe tannins. Just this side of over the top."International Wine Cellar 90 points
