Yakima Valley more

Young, nice balance, tight after 1.5 hr decant, very good promise for the future. Nice match with a porterhouse steak at the Metropolitan Grille in Seattle.

This never showed me much. Perhaps it needed more of a decant.

I couldn't resist trying a bottle early to see if the wine had the components to develop into a great wine. Time will tell, yet I am impressed so far. Try again in 2017.

Either needs more time or should be allowed to breath for 1 hour before enjoying. I still feel this wine will soften a bit over the next 2-3 years.

The tannins are softening, yet there is still a tightness about this wine. The jury is still out as to whether this wine will become harmonious. I continue to see improvement.
