2015 K Vintners The Creator Cabernet/Syrah Blend Powerline Vineyard Walla Walla Vineyard
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 97 Points:
The 2015 The Creator is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Syrah, but even though it’s in the minority, the Syrah seems to define the wine’s personality. The bouquet wafts from the glass with notes of grilled meat, bay leaf and ripe blackberries and mulberries. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, rich and layered, with immense depth and concentration, its ample core of fruit largely concealing an abundant endowment of fine-grained, ripe tannins. Despite its scale, it eschews extractive excess, and it should be well worth following for the next 15-20 years. (WK)

A blend of 80/20 Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, the 2015 Cabernet / Syrah The Creator Powerline Vineyard offers a perfumed, singular bouquet of blackcurrants, ripe black cherries, tobacco, peat, and olive tapenade. This ripe, sexy, opulent effort has sweet tannin, a layered, rounded, sexy style, and a great finish. It's a pure, sexy red to drink over the coming decade.
