I'm a sucker for anything 2007 vintage in Washington. I love '07 Pinots, '07 Red Mtn cabs and '07 Les Collines 'anything'. When I saw this, I got excited. This wine immediately show its age. Maybe a bit too much age though. The fruit seemed to have left the building and it forgot to turn the lights out! The terroir was a lot more intense than the fruit. If I would have tasted this early last year, I would have loved it. Unfortunately, I think it may be past its prime.

Fruit forward flavors of tomato and cherry. A nice effort but not a wine I'm particularly fond of.

A little to acidic with too little flavor to overcome this.
