2006 SHERIDAN Cab Franc
Compass Wines in Anacortes, WA has rated this wine as of one 2008 top 10 wines "Without question, the finest Cabernet Franc I have ever had from Washington. I would love to throw it into a blind tasting of Right Bank Bordeaux. A volcano of smoky, wild strawberry and toasted wheat bread Fortnum and Masons in a glass." web site

Riesling O·S Winery 2005
"From red wine gurus Owen Sullivan comes this tasty white wine from Champoux Vineyards in Washington's Horse Heaven Hills. Lots of lush pear and citrus flavors with a lengthy, creamy finish. With only about 3% residual sugar on finish, this wine is unlike many other overpoweringly syrupy-sweet Rieslings. At 9% alcohol you can drink a lot of this, if not for the slightly high price tag. However in this case, I think it's worth every penny. I picked up my bottle at Compass Wines in Anacortes. Limited production, so don't wait to buy this one! "

"...this wine is still velvety, focused and impeccable balanced, a nicely shaped mouthful of cherry, nutmeg, pepper and tarry flavors that linger effortlessly on the seamless finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc."

"Ripe, rich and almost flamboyant, with its currant, blueberry, plum and exotic spice aromas and flavors sashaying through the thin veils of fine tannins. A spectacular mouthful that should only gain with cellaring. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot."

2001 Cabernet Franc
Rated: 90, Wine Spectator 5/8/03
"Champoux Vineyard is one of Columbia valley's most venerable vineyards, and it shows in this ripe, generous wine, relatively light and supple in texture, a lovely mouthful of cherry and cream flavors, hinting at white pepper on the generous tangy finish. "
