Medium+ ruby in colour with a high intensity nose.

Positives: The taste of this complex wine washes over the palate in waves. Look for dark cherry, tamarind, rhubarb, blackberry, mulberry, plums, red currants, licorice, black pepper, capers, celery & earth notes. Medium body, medium+ acidity & very long length.

Negatives: Due to its complexity some notes may not be for everyone, but I really liked it.

Interesting Point: Washington's first certified organic winery in 1990.

Drink now on its own or pair it with veal Parmigiana.

Tasted: 22 Jan 12

Dark, opaque ruby red colour. Strong complex nose of black cherry, vanilla, oak spice, pepper, and some licorice. On the palate this wine had medium, but soft textured tannins and a full body. Licorice, black cherry, vanilla, and pepper come through. Long finish.
Tasted March, 2012.
