Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
"Making “Cab Sauv” cool again. Man, I have had my own fractured relationship with Cab. Like, Pinot Noir, there are many “standardized” examples out there. Lots of Cab is made by focus groups, not by winemakers. When I walked the REDACTED Vineyard with James Moss for the first time and he showed me his Cabernet blocks and explained their rarity (in Oregon and Washington) I was quick to say “yes”.
There are wine memories that I still hold on to. They are burned into my mind so vividly that I reflect back on them frequently. They are some of those first wine memories I have, at a time when I was just starting to understand my own palate. There is a confidence that builds from tasting many wines and there are certain styles of wines that make a huge first imprint. For me it was Bordeaux, both red and white wines. The plushness, the dark fruits, the tobacco (I love cigars), the density. I set out to launch this inaugural release of Ordeaux as an homage to those Bordeaux styles." - Winery
