I also purchased the 06/09/2012 offer for Raised by Wolves Washington Cabernet. The description was: Appellation: Walla Walla Valley
• Vineyards: Lowden Hills, Walla Walla 40%; 7 Hills Vineyards, Walla Walla 60%
• Barrel Aging: 20 Months American Oak (40% new)
• Alcohol: 13.9%
• Cases Produced: 560 Cases
We were led to believe that they were the same, but it appears they were different. CT link was for the same wine. I have not tried the latter, but hope it will be good. Anyone tried the two? Any comparisons?
Hey Jim: I don't have my notes, but both are pretty solid wines and solid in the QPR department. Have you opened the cab yet? Any comparisons/contrasts you can offer?
