Crisp and dry. Good flavor but not terribly potent. Not sure how well it’d hold up to a red wine pairing

Classic WA cab but still extremely young. These develop really well with a decade on them.

Beautiful cork. Great deep color. Unfortunately, the aromas did not follow through. Very acetic. Seemed like there was a vibrance in there somewhere that never came out.

Oak. Bomb. But I love the style for the varietal and the region and I love how it plays against the big fruit. Year in and year out a great buy.
