This is a real crowd pleaser the the wine geek would also appreciate. Rich plum and blackberry with 14.1% abv, but not over ripe. Nice, lingering finish. Not terribly complex, but pleasing. Fantastic family wine...that you will enjoy too.

Oh, so sinister! Nice break from Cab, this WA GSM blend doasts good spice and acidity with dried plum and cranberry flavors. Benefited from age, but could still drink well over the next 5-8 years.

2013 vintage Purple-red, slight butter and veg note in nose, round mouthfeel, cherry, mint, barrel-smoke and blackberry in finish with slight astringency on back of tongue. Tasty, needs time to open.

Super rich and deep. It was a bit aggressive in the fruit for me, went down with ease but was missing the nuance, acidy and firmer tannins that I am looking for. No regrets but it missed the mark for my taste.

Full bodied, but not super complex taste. This is an enjoyable wine. Still preferring the delicious Own Roe Pinot Noir.
