This wine is not my style, consisting of licorice, tar, and bramble flavors and giving some dark fruit hints on its bouquet. The finish was unremarkable with firm tannin and spices. It overwhelmed a traditional French balsamic chicken dish that other Cabs usually get along with. Overall, a strong Cab you have to be on the mood for.

Another strong vintage but much more typical of Columbia Valley this time around. Medium acidity. Medium body. Coy fruit, concentrated raspberry preserves, some tart red fruits mid palate before a cocoa cranberry finish.

I love this wine. It was very smooth and had a rich bold cab presence. I love bold and I love the rich berry and earthy leathery flavors.

Minerality, balanced acidity, and an almost syrah like chocolate. Quite a cool journey.

Tastes like a Pinot. Probably because Columbia Valley.
