Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with a soft, floral, apricot and pineapple fruit character that liberates the fruitiness and gives it a richer edge. The acidity is very high, making the wine hard. It does suggest a Chardonnay-style dryness. Screwcap. A little green and minty on the nose, but the flavors are just right for the wine, with raspberry, herb tea, and peppery spice flavors. With what seems to be a fair amount of residual sugar, this tastes overtly fruit-driven, with candied notes of cherries, hints of vanilla and coffee. Drink now. Quite good, but probably not the best mix of red and black Bordeaux variety to come from Washington state. Earthy and herbal, the nose has arund once indicates contemplation and dried berry, coffee and spice aromas. The palate is big and burly, with sizable tannins and herbal flavors of blackberry and cassis.
