Deep almost blackish red coloration. Wreaks of elementary school marks-a-lot, licorice, and forest floor. Weighty attack of blackberry compote, licorice, and cassis with medium finish of chewy tannins and bright acidity. Still has some weight and tannin to shed but will retain its freshness due to its great amount of acid.

Mix of leather, black currant with notes of smoke. A little dusty. On the lighter side, a little more acidity than I like in cabs.

Very nice, on the ripe side but good acidity. Licorice, boysenberry, black cherry, Marks-A-Lot marker. Firm and long finish. A young wine to be sure. Rich and deep but not a ton of complexity. One of the better Washington State cabs I've had. Most I hate and find gloppy.

Dark, almost black. Medium+ viscosity. Bright, sweet red fruits, licorice, and vanilla on the nose. Medium body, medium+ acid, medium+ alcohol (marked 13.8%, but tastes much higher), medium, pretty round tannins, gravel, tart blackberries and raspberries, dust/dirt on palette. Paired very well with chimichurri skirt steak and artichokes.

Color of deep burgundy with brownish haze on the rim. Nose of round alcohol, herbs, leather, dark cherries, and a bit smoky barrel note. Taste of polished but powerful acidity with sweet note hidden within it, dried dates, cherries, leathery, anise, hot spices, peppery, and low in the tannins. A bit too watery. Aftertaste of some dried apricot note, spice, lingering acidity, and ground white pepper, not too long. Considering the price tag, it doesn't resonate too well with me.

Black cherries on the nose. Palate is loaded with dark fruits and is smooth as silk. Nice.

Tart cherry bomb! Great with venison carpaccio and a New York strip steak.
