Wine Review: This pitch black colored red blend from Washington opens with a black currant bouquet with hints of anise. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and loaded with rich black fruits. Those fruits are ripe black currant and blackberry flavors that are blended together with hints of oak, minerality and black licorice. The finish is dry and its dusty moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair well with roasted duck with a plum reduction sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Black cherry and cocoa aromas compliment vibrant flavors of blackberry, licorice and cassis. Hints of graphite and a subtle earthiness provide layers of complexity. With its firm structure and polished tannins, the velvety texture glides easily across a lengthy finish.
