In 2007, one year after Drew's retirement from the NFL, the Bledsoe family launched Doubleback, an estate focused winery that produces world-class Cabernet Sauvignon from the Walla Walla Valley, Drew’s hometown. It has now been more than ten years since the Bledsoe's set out on this immensely rewarding adventure. Throughout those years they patiently cultivated a vision for the future. With unwavering enthusiasm for the Walla Walla Valley, they have made the decision to create Bledsoe Family Winery – a sister project to Doubleback. They have strategically developed four estate vineyards – McQueen, Bob Healy, Lefore, and most recently, Flying B in Walla Walla — each with its own exceptional set of characteristics. At the same time, they have also established long-term sources from some of the valley’s oldest and most revered blocks of vines from highly respected estates. For these reasons, they are compelled to push the boundaries to realize new wine varietals and to expand upon the standard of high-level wine growing and winemaking they have become known for.

The Bledsoe family has been blessed with a rich history of which each of their labels reference, incredibly loyal and supportive customers, and an extremely talented and dedicated team – led by winemaker Josh McDaniels. As with Doubleback, Drew and Maura welcome and invite you to be a part of their family by enjoying the wines of Bledsoe Family Winery.   

Josh on the 2019 : 'It seems like yesterday that we were knee-deep, quite literally, in the 2019 harvest. Dark ruby in the glass, it opens up aromatically in the same fashion. Dark fruits like blackberry and Bing Cherry, followed up by graphite, wood shavings, and baking spice. Ultra-balanced with long, fine-tannins and great acidity. The finish on this wine is incredible - which is something that I love about great Cabernet. Drink now through the next 15-20 years.'

This 2019 is such a gorgeous follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2018 from the Bledsoe family. Rich, multi-layered and supple, this Cabernet is also fresh, balanced and energetic. Deep plum, black cherry and currant flavors mingle with vanilla bean, loamy earth and gentle spice notes. This is such a winner in the premium American Cabernet circle, and definitely tastes like the 'younger brother' version of Drew's esteemed Doubleback Cellars. Walla Walla is a very exciting place to make wine these days. Bravo to Drew, Josh and their team!

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 11% Malbec, and the rest Cabernet Franc that's from a mix of sites outside of Walla Walla. Aged 22 months in 57% new French oak, its deep purple hue is followed by a great nose of ripe cassis, graphite, spring flowers, and spicy oak. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully balanced with ripe tannins, this is a terrific Cabernet readers will love. It will benefit from just a few years in the cellar and keep for 15-20 years.

Aromas of cedar, tilled earth, coffee, black cherry, herb and spice lead to an explosion of fruit flavors. The palate is intense but possesses compelling freshness. There's a whole lot of tannic heft behind it. Give it time in cellar or an extended decant. Best from 2028-2035.

Dark magenta in the glass, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is broad and generously layered with a dense core of dark red and black fruit essences. Full-bodied, the wine is juicy yet firm with fine-grained tannins that grip the gumline before lingering long over the spicy, focused finish. It's a broad-shouldered wine that will drink better with additional time in the bottle. The wine rested for 18 months in barrel, 50% new French oak, and will please Napa Cabernet drinkers. Only 2,000 cases were produced.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and rich in the glass, with a deeply alluring mix of blueberry and cherry sauce complemented by hints of mocha and tobacco leaf. While ripe in style and fruit-centric, this boasts a core of stimulating acidity and minerals that balances out the style beautifully, as exotic inner florals cascade throughout. The 2019 leaves a web of sweet tannins to linger while finishing remarkably fresh, as echoes of violet pastille and spiced citrus fade. This is a wonderfully balanced blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 11% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc, where each variety really adds to the final result. Well done.
