Just can’t get over the tannic structure of this wine. Not sure there is enough time to resolve the tannins.

The Figgins Estate Vineyard is a high elevation site in the Walla Walla Valley, planted to Bordeaux varietals. The Estate Proprietary Red utilizes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot and was aged for 22 months in largely new French oak prior to bottling. Needing more than an hour decant, the wine slowly releases bright red cherry, dill, sandalwood, and black tea aromatics that build in the glass. The palate is silky smooth, delivering a nice combination of red and dark fruits with black tea, anise and smoky undertones shining through as well. Bright and flavorful, this excellent effort will cellar marvelously for the next fifteen to twenty years. Drink 2019-2035- 93

In your face tannins. Right from the start to a lingering finish. Red vibrant fruit in the middle settling into dark dry fruit with an earthy edge. Great wine. And it will further evolve.
