2005 Novelty Hill, Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, Washington, $25, 4,108 cases. Blackberries, violets and toasty oak underscore the wine. Very elegant on the entry, the wine has supple tannins and food-friendly acidity. Approachable now; 88/89.

2005 Patit Creek, Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla Valley, Washington, $29, 333 cases. This deeply-hued wine gives off aromas and flavors of black cherries, cedar and cocoa. Very well structured – this one is begging for a grilled rib-eye steak; 89/90.

Is Patit Creek the little place up in Dayton?

Used to be -- they were bought out and moved to Walla Walla.
