Classy nose of earth and red fruit. Smooth entry with crushed red fruit, velvety tannins. Hint of smoke, layers of complexity and depth on the back of the palate. Smooth textured finish.

Charming, still primary cassis/blackberry fruit, medium bodied 13.5%ABV, tannins are present but very polished and not overpowering. Very elegant. Needs more time to bring about tertiary notes. 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc. 18-28 days fermentation, temps 26-28 C. Aged 15-18 months in 50% new French oak, 50% 1st fill. Racking every 3 months.

Purchased in 1992 in IL moved back to Oregon with us in 99 and drunk in 18. Still holding up well, earthy leather and tannin. Smooth finish with great length and enough acid to hold up to dinner

It’s alive! Definitely in it’s last years, but the fruit is still there—prunes, cedar, forest floor, tobacco on the end and another wallop of prune and fig, finishes forever and ever.

From the terrific ‘00 vintage, fine tannins, black plum, cassis, juniper, touch of earth on the finish
