Community Tasting Notes (33) Avg Score: 89.5 points

  • A bit disjointed, rough and light at first, but after about half an hour, it settled down nicely and by an hour in, it had smoothed out nicely. Medium bodied and very soft and open at this stage. It's 74% cabernet, but I would have guessed a predominantly merlot based blend, but for the herbs, leather and spices on the finish. This is a very nice wine for everyday drinking, but it's not tremendously complex. It's soft, open and in balance now and I don't see additional time in the cellar as bringing any major benefit. Still, a good value for drinking over the next year or two.

  • Still very rough around the edges but it nevertheless brings a nice contrasting combo of savory herbs vs. rich, dark fruit. Not sure it will completely balance out but it should get a little better in the next few years. Great BBQ wine.

  • this bottle was drinkable, but not particularly good. very disjointed, but not flawed. A big shift from the previous bottle from the same vintage.

  • Needed air time to blow off the herbatious notes.
    Will probably wait another year for the next bottle.

  • All that I had expected and more. Pretty, well-integrated and deftly balanced. To reiterate, although California has trouble blending these two assertive varieties; usually resulting in chunky, angular, almost clumsy wines, Washington seems capable of pulling it off with the greatest of ease and finesse. This one sang, with notable restraint and a level of intrigue that kept my interest. (89+)
