OMG! The 2005 BSH is off-the-charts delicious. Brooding aromas of crushed black fruits with hints of espresso and mint. The structure and mouth-feel are superb. The black cherry cassis and blackberry flavors are nicely edged with notes of dark roast coffee. The fruit, the tannins, the acidity and the alcohol are all in perfect harmony delivering a super-sensual texture highlighted by the rich tannins and the savory, lengthy finish.

RATINGS & AWARDS
Rated: 91, Wine Advocate (Robert Parker) 06/30/08
ORIGIN OF GRAPE
Like R3, BSH is a blend of wines from each of the vineyards we work with. It is however mainly a Cabernet wine and those lots are primarily Champoux and Sheridan. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc are from Sheridan, Champoux and Dineen all in the Columbia Valley AVA.
