Interesting varietal, done in a very delicate way. Melon and cantaloupe flavors subtly mix on the initial pallet. The soft, thin body is deceiving because the tannic structure evolves noticeably after the swallow. Not my favorite wine (I favor the bold), but certainly interesting (more complex than the average pinot gris). — a month ago
Red mtn. all the way (i.e. huge fruit and a hint of banana), with softer tannins (thanks to aging perhaps) and a sweet lingering finish. Yum! — 2 months ago
Wow! 2007 was a great vintage and 10 years on, it still shows brilliantly. Wet stone, raspberry/cherry and a faint cedar note on the nose. Still tannic and grippy, with spicy notes and a wonderful dried cranberry and ripe raspberry flavor that fades into a hint pf white pepper and plum. — 2 months ago
Rich, ripe fruit (cherry and plum), traces of smoke and an oaky finish speak volumes (i.e. It's a Cali wine yo). — 2 months ago
Amazing to taste this after about 7 years in the cellar... it tastes young still! Let this prove that WA cab, at least this one, can easily age 10+ years (i am going to save my other bottle another 4-5 years). Intense red stone fruit and mouth gripping tannins, tobacco and cola notes dominate tail end of the sip. Pleasant minerality and earthiness on the nose. Yum!! — 3 months ago
