Inky in color with a short reddish rim.
Nice nose of black currants, black plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco, chocolates, light vegetables, pencil lead, coffee, earth, herbs and black pepper.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, tobacco, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, leather, earth, dark coffee, pencil lead, bitter herbs, green vegetables, beef jerky and peppercorn.
Medium plus on the finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Fruit forward with a Bordeaux feel. Spicy and interesting. I really enjoyed the nose here.
Good right out of the bottle, and gets earthier as it opens up. Much better after 2 hours of airtime. Would be interesting to try it in 3 to 5 years.
A good food wine that will pair nicely with lamb dishes. Paired well with the Brie cheese.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged for 22 months in French oak barrels (93% new).
15% alcohol by volume.
