    May 27, 2016 - I wasreally unimpressed with this wine. It had alot ofwood and itwas not balanced with fruit. Good body but merely okay.

    April 14, 2016 - Plenty of blackberry and cherry note, with sweet spice and touches of licorice. Lush and long on the finish, this seems to be in a prime drinking window.

    March 9, 2016 - Monthly Tasting Group HWS #107; Oregon and Washington (By MO): In the beautiful bouquet a lot of dark berries, licorice and beautiful oak. On the palate dark berries, a lot of sweet spices like cinnamon, chocolate, leather, beautifully fresh acidity and soft tannin with still a pleasant bite. Maturity stage now and the next 5+ years. Without any doubt the WOTN. 92 -93

    March 8, 2016 - This wine significantly improves on decanting but I drank it first straight away after opening, then poured through a Vinturi then from the decanter after an hour post-Vinturi pour. It got better at each juncture. It is the most Bordeaux-like wine from Washington that I know of. Subtle and graceful and light on its feet but with depth of flavor that is quite remarkable. Black fruit, earth, leather. Quite a beautiful wine with many good years ahead of it.

    December 13, 2015 - Last of my bottles of this vintage and it was great; a great blend with the CF, Merlot and PV harmonizing nicely with the CS.
