According to Wine Advocate -One of my favorite Columbia Valley Blend. Ripe, full-bodied and hedonistic, with plenty of roasted herbs, licorice, baked earth and meaty black cherry and plum, it flows onto the palate with loads of fruit and texture, yet stays light and classy. It should drink nicely for 7-8 years. Drink now through 2021. Good medium red. Redcurrant and plum aromas are lifted by oak notes of cedar and cinnamon. Broad and quite dry on the palate; very restrained and showing little in the way of easy sweetness today. More about estery spice oils than primary fruits. This intriguing wine finishes with firm tannic grip and aromatic spices.
