In 2004 the estate fruit was severely damaged by the freeze, so the blend includes a fair amount from Columbia Valley vineyards. It's very well made, fragrant and smooth, ready to drink and tasting very good. The flavors are nicely melded and show the mix of primary red fruits but also a bit of spice and a hint of caramel. Though considerably lighter than previous vintages, this is still an excellent effort. Paul Gregutt

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
