Light nose, with pretty, red cherry. On the palate, it's got ripe black cherry, blackberry and plum with moderated tannins, good acid and a lovely floral character. Nice, easy drinking, light bodied. Tasty and refreshing for a red blend. 4/21/12
For a Columbia Valley wine, this one really throws you off, since it has a nose that is so reminiscent of the lovely Walla Walla blends, which suggests for a CV designation, this one is likely under-appreciated, The nose is a lovely combination of leather, ripe red fruit and a bit of spice, all surrounded by a hint of musky earth. The taste is just lovely, with some ripe berries up front, along with some tart cherry, which makes for an interesting combination, followed by some green grass and cedar midpalate. The finish is perfectly dry, as the well developed tannins support a long, lush, dry finish.

Bright red fruit on the nose. Tastes of red currant, chocolate, and baking spaces with hints of raspberry jam. Silky tannins, nice balance. Really enjoyable wine.
Decanted 1 hour. Color is much lighter than I expected...very thin, somewhat translucent even. Nose is floral (violets?) with some rasp/blackberry fruit and a nice leather and earth component. On the palate, flavors of blackberry, leather, and dirt prevail, with secondary floral flavors. Picture riding a horse slowly through a meadow of wildflowers, eating blackberries and you have this wine. After 3 hours, the wine sort of fell apart, getting quite bitter and flavorless. Interesting evolution over the 3 hour period. I started out really enjoying the wine, even though it was too thin for my tastes. But I ended up not liking it much at all, and dumped the remainder down the drain.

Crisp tannins wrap around cinnamon-accented dark berry and toast flavors in this supple, generous, savory red, which finishes with a hint of roasted beet. Shows depth and dimension, but not weight. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2015.
Bright, deep red. Musky, wild aromas of red fruits, flint, meat and truffle; this smells like syrah! Supple on entry, with an exotic spice quality and a whiff of whiskey barrel-like oak adding interest to the red fruit flavors. Some wiry acidity running through the wine gives it a slightly dry quality. Finishes with a flavor of sweet plum.
