The complexity in this Bordeaux blend is immediately apparent on the nose; with aromas of bay leaf, dark cherry, raspberry, cigar box, and baking spices. Dusty spices—characteristic of Walla Walla Valley wines—include nutmeg and clove. This wine has smooth tannins, extraordinary balance, and enough intrigue to satisfy the most discerning of wine drinkers.
“This wine has a high degree of complexity…like a good French Bordeaux.”
– Jay DeWitt, Winemaker
