"Best Buys", Rand Sealey, Review of Washington Wines

Tasting notes

Seducve, nearly opaque, ruby color with aromas of bright fruit, vanilla, mocha and a hint of oak. In terms of varietal percentages, this blend is our most balanced release since 2002. Firm, subtle tannins with flavors of dark cherry, blackberry, black currant, & cinnamon. It reminds us of relaxing by a creek on a warm summer day. Eating warm, wild blackberries right off the shrub. The smell of wet stones and earth. All the complex sounds, smells, and sensaons that work in harmony to bring the mind back into balance.

New Release!
"This is a tasty blend of 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot, 20% Syrah, 15% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Franc. It shows a deep ruby color and rich, aromas of blackberries, black cherries, plums, rosebuds, tobacco, rubbed sage and wood smoke. The flavors are generous and robust, with dark fruits that are intermixed with licorice, cocoa, medium roast coffee and earth. The chewy textured back picks up pressed berries, roasted nuts, cedar and graphite, followed by a satisfying moderate tannin finish. This delivers a lot for its modest price. 18+/20 points." - Rand Sealey, Review of Washington Wines
