Bright ruby-red. Musky blackcurrant, black raspberry, licorice, bitter chocolate, and menthol on the nose. A dense, silky, concentrated fruit bomb in the mouth, with dark berry and dark chocolate flavors accented and shaped by menthol and mineral notes. Wonderfully sweet and mouth filling with a savory umami silkiness and no rough edges. Finishes with sweet tannins and terrific lingering fruits, spices, and chocolate, along with a hint of woodsmoke. Balanced and delicious from the start but possesses the sheer material to evolve slowly and gracefully. My sample held up extremely well for 72 hours. – Stephen Tanzer

19+/20 points

Composed of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, this “Artist Series” wine displays a deep ruby color and rich aromas of raspberry, cherry and black currant with scents of crushed roses, latakia tobacco, mulberry, sandalwood, a hint of mint, sage and sultry incense. The flavors are generous, yet focused with notes of licorice, cocoa, roasted coffee beans and variegated minerals. On the back, the wine turns chewy yet silky, with sensations of pressed fruits, toffee, kirsh and framboise liqueurs, toasted nuts and graphite, followed by a savory tannin finish. Shows fine balance and texture throughout which gives it a plus. - Rand Sealy, Review of Washington Wines
