The 2005 vintage was outstanding in the Walla Walla Valley. This is a delicious, full-bodied wine with a touch of smoky spice and black fruit aromas on the nose.
Concentrated flavors of cherry and blackberry, with a silky tannin profile. An elegant wine with abundant flavors that persist long after the wine is gone.
