Drinking nicely right now. Popped and poured at a restaurant and drank over the next 90 minutes. No detailed notes, but characteristics included dark fruits, pencil shavings, and some tart cherries showing a little age. Good. Nice acid. Definitely a solid wine that has smoothed out and developed into a very easy drinker. Nothing to write home about, but very satisfying regardless.
A nice, smooth wine overall. Smells of plums, blackberries, tar and tobacco. Dark fruit palate with some stony mineral, tar, and wet leaves. Nice feel on the palate, medium feel with balanced structure. Nothing really jumps out as that exciting, but for $20 you can't go wrong here. It went fantastic with some BBQ'd pork chops and greens, I love wines like this that only add flavor to a meal, not overpower it.
Merlot dominant blend which is a little sweet and ripe, but still manages to coat your mouth with berries and cherries. Simple finish but somehow carries Washington terroir perfectly. Now is the time to drink if you have any of these.
