Thin and tart. Nothing special. Better options at this price point that have better complexity and body.

Newly opened bottle at tasting. One of the better bottles at the tasting. Reasonably solid body but odd flavor on midpalate.

Shipped from winery. Not normally a big fan of cool Washington cabernet, but this is better than others I've had. Tart fruit forward. Tannins present but not firm.

Club shipment. Not ready to drink. Tannins need several years to soften. Still overly tannic the next day. Will probably age well because of that. Dark fruit with touch of gamey meat.

Still has solid tannins after several years aging. Probably needs more time for tannins to soften to reach balanced state. Bit of brine on nose immediately after opening. As it sits nose opens to dark fruit and tobacco. Earthy on the palate. Bit hot too. Doesn't linger too long.

Removed from cellar 1 hour before opening. Opened 45 minutes before pouring. Lighter body than I remember. Still pretty tannic on finish - thinner body makes this even more pronounced. Not as balanced as I would like.

Wow. This is a bold, fruit forward fine with a powerhouse body. This is an amazing deal. Bought a bottle; Drank that, then bought a case. Enough said. $17.
