2010 Heritage Nicolas 91pts Wine Enthusiast - November 2015 Issue

91 pts Gamache Vintners 2010 Heritage Nicolas, Columbia Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon makes up half of this blend from Gamache and Champoux vineyards, with the balance Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Coffee, vanilla, herb and cherry aromas lead to dark-fruit and barrel-spice flavors that linger. The wood is up front but plenty of good things are going on. - S.S. Wine Enthusiast
