jeb dunnuck logo 250"More cassis, cedary spice, and dried flower notes emerge from the 2015 Red Wine Chester Kidder. It's medium to full-bodied, beautifully complex, and layered, with more upfront charm and approachability than most 2015s. Nevertheless, it's going to evolve gracefully on its balance and harmony. Made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, and 15% Petit Verdot that spent a full 30 months in oak, hats off to winemaker Gilles Nicault for another terrific vintage for this wine."

2010 Long Shadows Columbia Valley Chester Kidder - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(15.1% alcohol; a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Syrah and 5% petit verdot; aged in 90% new oak barrels whose staves were air-dried for 36 months; bottled in March of 2012; made by winemaker/estate manager Gilles Nicault): Deep ruby-red. Aromas of dark berries, graphite and sexy oak lifted by violet and licorice notes reminded me a bit of Napa Valley. Supple, broad and attractively gentle, conveying an impression of superb breadth without any excess weight. The flavors of black cherry, cassis and flowers carry through on the long finish, which features very fine tannins and excellent length. I never would have guessed the octane level here. - Stephen Tanzer."

wa93"Made by the Long Shadow's manager, Gilles Nicault, the 2010 Chester Kidder is a smoking blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Pure, voluptuous and rich, with fantastic blackberry fruit, crushed rock like minerality, lead pencil and graphite, it's a serious, age worthy red that will evolve gracefully for 10 to 12 years or more. - Jeb Dunnuck"
