Medium purple. Nose of slightly herbal American oak, which makes the dark fruits notes seem a little foxy/Labrusca-like to me. CO2 prickle on palate, which lowers score for me.
Maybe foxy character because we paired w Mexican food (raw white onions in sale?)
Tasty but I was hoping for a bit more fruit/ripeness.

Drinks like a Syrah without the tannins. Fruity, light, easy drinking.

Less character than past vintages, which is starting to look like a trend, but still has great drinkability. Consistently one of my favorite WA wines in the $10 range.

Pretty intense. Reminds me of Lagrein. Grape jelly, baking spices, pepper, moderate plus acid. Great by itself and with juicy foods.

This was the first vineyard planted on red mountain. In Austria they call it blaubergunder. They have 260 acres on red mountain. 1975 was the first red mountain vineyard. A very unique and spiced wine with fine tannins and a nice touch of that red miuntain fruit. Red berry fruit nice fresh finish. A lighter red but lots if nuance excellent
