Wine Review: This midnight blue colored wine from Washington State is impressive. It opens with fragrant black currant and black licorice bouquet with hints of oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, juicy and very smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty blackberry with notes of minerality, dark chocolate, coffee and oak. The finish is rather dry and its substantial tannins are sticky and last for quite some time. This wine would certainly benefit from decanting and would pair nicely with a well-marbled ribeye steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep crimson colored with gorgeous aromas of blackberry, mocha and sweet herbs. Across the palate, the intensity and complexity of flavors build, ranging from ripe plum and rich black cherry to pleasant notes of graphite. This is a wine with excellent structure, creamy texture and delicate finesse from beginning to end.
