Wonderful berry fruit, subtle, chalky tannins and a superb balance of acidity. This wine would pair well with lentil dishes, red meats and game, sharp cheeses and dark chocolate.
"Like the '01, this beautifully structured wine is supple and racy, with tart zippy fruit. It shows classic Washington berry flavors, with cassis, bright acid and a hint of licorice. Absolutely clean and varietal, with the extra dimension rarely found in wines at this price."
