One of the last wines I picked up at Home Goods, this is one of the more expensive wines I chose but it was marked down from $20. I tend to like wines from the Washington State Columbia Valley and this one looked good to me. Very potent aroma of roasted meat, pepper and blackberry. The flavor of the wine is a little over the hill, which is probably why it was on sale. There’s still a good jolt of fruit with some oak and pepper as well. It just tastes a little old though, it would have been good at an earlier date.
