Made only in 2001, 2003, and 2005, this is Walla Walla Vintners' finest wine. The nose is deep enough to dive into, floral scents leading to cassis and blueberry, then toast and earth. Full in the mouth, with a compact, powerful richness, it continues with blueberries, tar, pepper and a bit of caramel.
