Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.
Fruity nose with plums, cherries, oak, blueberries, vanilla, licorice, cloves, chocolates, mocha, spices, green vegetables, bitter herbs, light barnyard and black pepper.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, coffee, oak, cloves, light vanilla, vegetables, wet leaves, bitter herbs, spices and peppercorn.
Medium on the finish with soft tannins, bitter herbs and tangy cranberries.
This is a nice Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State. Not fully balanced yet, with a nice mouthfeel and mild complexity.
Still young and bitter on the mid palate. Needs a couple of years in the bottle to mature and remove some of bitterness.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up.
I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.
A blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Wines like this don't come around often. This wine has been aged but its complexity and balance are what astounds. It has that intrinsic Spanish iodine taste but with the layers of dried berries the wine is dynamic. Paired with smoked chicken, escarole and avocados. — 3 years ago
If the swelled bellied orange marmot sat squat atop the cranium of a bellicose, belligerent human representation of a malignant tumor hasn't got your disposition a bit in the dumps, please pass on this wine; you obviously lack the qualities of a thoughtful human being and should stick to wines marketed as domestic dispute. For those of us who prefer life in varied tones, who revel in the complexities and nuance intrinsic in existence: find yourself a bottle of this elegant rose. Subtle, but present. Profound, yet humble. A profile of elegance, an example that all the ugliness vomited out into our lives cannot deny us our simple pleasure in life. — 3 years ago
$11. Hello old friend, how are you. My granite lick, river of stone. You are always there. Giving me my vitamins. You have always been sweet, with a cold shoulder. We can talk about the externalities intrinsic in the dialectics of Lacan, or how great the rain feels on the pores around our areolas. My dear, you fill me all full like, I love you. Never leave. — 3 years ago
