A brief history

For former NFL Quarterback Drew Bledsoe, owning a winery has been a longtime aspiration that would allow him to combine his passion for fine wine and the love of the Walla Walla Valley, his hometown. Drew returned in 2007 to plant his original estate vineyard, McQueen, on the Southern end of the Walla Walla Valley AVA. The following year, Drew launched Doubleback, an estate- focused winery with the goal to produce world- class Cabernet Sauvignon. To make this dream a reality, Drew collaborated with his childhood friend Chris Figgins of Leonetti Cellar, who consulted on all winemaking and vineyard practices while training current winemaker, Josh McDaniels. Josh assumed the role in 2015 after a decade of experience with the Figgins family.

Since the very first release, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, Doubleback has received numerous accolades including a spot on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 List. The vision for Doubleback remains to be a premium wine experience completely focused on quality. To further assist the vision of high quality, estate focused wine, Drew acquired a second estate vineyard, Bob Healy, in 2011, and a third estate vineyard, Flying B, in 2016 which will become the future home of Doubleback as we break ground in 2017. Drew and Maura Bledsoe are committed to using only the most sustainable, superlative viticulture and winemaking practices to ensure that Doubleback will be on of the best bottles of wine you will drink.

I can’t say enough how much I love the 2018 vintage and this wine - an absolutely stunning year and a vintage that shows a winemaker how great wines can really be. I tasted this new Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon over a week and it kept getting better and changing in complexity. One true challenge is creating a wine that will age for decades but will also drink well on release. I think 2018 accomplished that to perfection. Crème de cassis, black currant, blackberry, wafts of dried cranberry, a hint of wet gravel after a fresh rain, and pencil shavings. The richness of this wine is a love affair- chewy tannins and a long, long finish is something that I truly gravitate towards in wines that I enjoy on a personal level and it is on high display here. Everything is in balance. Enjoy this wine now through 2043.

This new vintage was one where blending trials became a true artistic challenge as numerous lots were eligible to make it into the new Estate Reserve. A consistent goal that we have diligently stuck by is to craft elegant wines that we truly enjoy ourselves, so as to make a real connection with our loyal customers. However, “elegance” doesn’t have to mean lacking of tannin as often assumed in new world wines. One of our favorite wines of the world, Barolo, always comes to mind as a perfect example of this as it’s amazing to experience the beautiful elegance some of the great producers there showcase in spite of the large tannins.
