    January 14, 2013 - PnP w/45 min decant time. Slight sediment cloud, dark purple/red color. Nice nose. Very decent. Med/fuller body, pencil, tart, good balance, proper fruit flavors and profile. Fairly clean, med finish. Good example of how Merlot should taste. Nothing off. Good value wine.

    October 16, 2012 - Nose: big fruit, graphite Taste: nice acidity, ripe cherries, herbs, high deliciousness factor, needs decanting and has a fair amount of sediment.

    April 30, 2012 - At least a slight bit perplexing. It's been open (& decanted) for just over 2 hours now. The aromatics are pleasing with licorice-tinged cocoa powder. The notably rich mouthfeel is distracting me from being able to pinpoint the flavors - hinting of slightly tart black and blue berry fruit. Again, the richness is notable and continues right into the smoothly integrated finish. All that praise yet, there's something ever-so slightly disjointed about the total package?..
    Another 30mins in and I'm getting a nice, savory finish and aromatics that are more assertive; with evolving flavors that emphasize the briary, black fruits. This wine has time and again, piques my interest in further exploring Washington.
    (suggestion: How about a big Washington tasting in San Fran?!)
