Winemaker's Notes

Ripe and plump, generous with its spicy, mocha-scented cherry and blackberry flavors, persisting smoothly through the long, harmonious finish." Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc.

"Fresh and lively, open in texture, with blackberry and red pepper aromas and flavors, picking up an earthy note as the sweet fruit persists on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and others. Drink now through 2010. 18,000 cases made." ~ The Wine Spectator

"Released quite young, this grapy red blend is a perennial favorite, for it mixes well-sourced grapes and substantial flavors of Washington-grown fruit at a modest cost. 40% Merlot, 32% Cab, 11% Cab Franc, 9% Sangiovese and 8% Syrah in this vintage, and interesting blend that brings dark tar and licorice along with plum and black tea. Just the slightest taste of oak and chocolate." Wine Enthusiast, April 2006
