Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Washington Cab opens with an oak, truffle, and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is a moderate oak infused boysenberry with notes of smoke and black currant mixed in. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are dusty and linger for a bit. I would pair this wine with a thick cut of Prime rib. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: It's elegant, old world structure and dense, dark fruit flavors show cassis, blackberry, plum and cocoa with earthy leather, tobacco and savory spice on a beautifully balanced, toasty finish.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:

Can white wines age? Yes! Rieslings age phenomenally well because of their acidity. As do cooler climate Chardonnays like those from Burgundy.
