"deep ruby color to go with classic Walla Walla notes of plums, blueberries, leafy herbs and peppered meats. Ripe, supple, medium to full-bodied and elegant, it has considerable polish and purity, and shines more for its finesse and elegance than power or impact. It's going to drink beautifully for a decade."

"Bright ruby-red. Musky aromas of dark berries, gunflint, bacon fat, pepper and brown spices. Quite backward and a bit peppery on the palate, not quite delivering the complexity or dimension promised by the nose. In a rather cool, dry style for the vintage, finishing with dusty tannins and good peppery/spicy lift. The wine's firm minerality suggests that it will repay aging but it's tightly wound today."
