"(13.9% alcohol; a 67/33 blend of merlot and cabernet franc): Bright, full medium red. Complex aromas of musky red berries, plum, truffle, game, smoke, flint and leather, with some enticing high notes of flowers and spice providing lift. Concentrated and juicy, with an almost glyceral texture but an uncanny light touch to the flavors of red berries and spices. Very complex and subtle Washington blend. Finishes long and smooth, with savory red fruit and cinnamon flavors, a captivating hint of rose petal, and fine-grained, ripe tannins. - Stephen Tanzer"
