    September 4, 2021 - Day 1: One of the more unique wines from Washington I have tasted but delicious. Heavy perfumed wine featuring bramble, green olives, rose petals, iron, spices, smoked meat and Garrigue. Medium plus finish. 92 points

    Such an interesting wine. So many different aromas and flavors.

    August 17, 2021 - Agreed with many reviews
    Light Ruby Color
    Aromas of bright, fresh red fruits cherry, strawberry, spices, black pepper, olive.
    Flavors were initially attractive — but wine morphed into a tough, bitter, steel wool finish that lingered throughout the meal. The finish tasted like CAMPARI — I thought I was drinking a Negroni.

    As wine opened up, it never really evolved.
    It didn’t pair well with any dish, and bitterness of the finish clobbered each mouth full.
    I tried to like this wine, but I just never enjoyed it and regretted my choice.
