Sourdough with blueberry, dried black currant, thyme, mint, black nigella sativa seed, black sugarless cake, and violet fragrances. Inky black color with a sedimentary side, but tar, graphite, baker's chocolate, espresso bean, licorice, forest floor biomass, black olive, and smoky black currant forever. Great wine from a storied vineyard! — 7 years ago
This was a full, rich wine: aromatically open with a mix of red raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, dark chocolate, sweet mint, and a savoriness like balsamic roasted vegetables, the flavors were well integrated and intense on the palate, supported by resolved silky tannins, a full body, and moderate acidity that I wish were a bit higher to balance a slightly bitter phenolic bite I got on the finish. From my favorite producer in Washington State, which is also one of my favorite regions for Bordeaux varieties. — 8 years ago
