My Rating 88 Points.
Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim. Not showing aging yet.
A wonderful fruity nose, with blackberries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cherries, sweet strawberries, spices, herbs and peppercorn.
Full-bodied with medium acidity, long legs, smooth and elegant.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, blueberries, vegetables, green peppers, oak, herbs, vanilla, licorice, cloves and black pepper.
Medium plus on the finish with extremely soft tannins and peppercorn.
This is a nice red blend from Columbia Valley. Well integrated, complex and pleasurable and good by itself. Also good with chicken or pork.I paired it with a chicken flat bread, cheeses and fruits.
This 5 year old was good right out of the bottle, but became more complex after 90 minutes in a decanter, with nice and interesting earthiness, that reminds a right bank red.
Had it last year, and it felt more like a Napa Cabernet. Very interesting, isn’t it?
A blend of 39% Merlot, 9% Malbec, 39% Syrah, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Grenache, 3% Petit verdot, 2% Mourvedre and 1% Cabernet Franc.
13.5% alcohol by volume.
