Our Review

A very dark shade, this bottling is a blend of the winery's three vineyards—Long Reach, Pahlmeyer and Wallula. The nose offers red-cherry and blackberry aromas, and the palate is quite reserved and lively with lively acidity. It's not a very complex wine but it has a good core of black-cherry and plum flavors with a touch of piquant game.
