Solid Bdx blend, but it needs time. Better after 1-2 hours. Has upside potential once a few rough edges wear off and the oak integrates better.

Back label touts a Bordeaux. cab, merlot, cab franc Spice and alcohol- on opening. Decanted one hour, still hot. 2nd hour starting to smooth out, still has spice and more vanilla than expected from French oak. Bigger than Bordeaux with 14.3% alc and more vanilla. Strong from the cab with flavs of tobacco, black currant, pepper but rounded fruit and soft tannins from the merlot. I don't know what the Cab Franc is doing. If Bordeaux than its more right bank. But hits for a Washington state Bdx blend. Like Andrew Will, which is a good thing, but for bdx freaks, too much alc. After 3 hours alc fades or I just don't mind anymore but it's silky smooth. This is their second wine, similar to what the big Bdx houses do, I'd like to taste the their first wine. On wine searcher prices start @ $41 so it's a great buy for $26 if you're into it. Which as I've almost consumed the entire bottle, I think I am into it, literally.

The plus is for its potential. Picked up a couple bottles on J2K recommendation but hadn't tried yet. Opened 6 hours before drinking and was glad I did. Tasted at 2 hours and pretty rough around the edges. Didn't notice the alcohol so much but thought the tannins were still holding a grip. Great dark fruit, nice vanilla from the oak, not as earthy as a Bdx but nice balance for so young. Going to scrape up another 6 or so from around the state and give it 3-5 years.
