A gorgeous wine, one of the finest I've tasted from Oregon, the medium to dark ruby-colored wine bursts from the glass with super-ripe red fruits and spices. Sadly, only 3 barrels of this superb, powerful, refined gem were produced. Concentrated, lush, and dense, it is a big, thick, juicy offering loaded with magnificently ripened red cherries whose flavors linger for more than 30 seconds on the finish. Bravo! Anticipated maturity now-2010.
