(2004 Vintage) 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc This is big. It begins with aromas of blueberries, spice, and dusty minerality. It grows into flavors of currant and black fruit, spice, and minerals. It continues to build into a broad finish of tooth coating tannins. The wine doesn’t want to end, but persists on and on.
WA 93pts.Elegant, Plum, Spice, Medium-bodied - Red Mountain, Washington- "Slightly high-toned aromas of blueberry, violet and chocolate, with a faintly candied quality. Sweet on entry, then broad, focused and drier in the middle palate, with some very ripe hints to the redcurrant and spice flavors."
