Wow! This was a real beauty. Nice garnet color, with some browning to it. On the nose, medium+ intensity, loaded with secondary bouquet, cigar, pencil shavings, tomato leaf, but still holding on the some black cherry, black currant, and plum fruit, with moderate oak. On the palate, dry, medium intensity, layered and complex, medium- tannins, medium acidity, and good length to the finish. This wine made me realize that we do make amazing wine in Washington, and although lately I have been bored by the two dimensions of new world wine, I saw that sometimes it takes 11 years for greatness to come to fruition.
