Aged in a mixture of neutral oak and concrete, this organic, dry-farmed wine—the latter an extreme rarity in Washington—displays brambly notes of brown stems, strawberry and spice. Starting out lighter in style, it ramps up in breadth and intensity with tart, mouthwatering acidity and firm tannins that need time to resolve fully. Best after 2017.
