Supple and rich, this makes a fine partner to the winery's BDX red sourced from the same Horse Heaven Hills Vineyard. Plenty of toast, mocha, chocolate and coffee ground flavors fill up the middle, but the ripe cherry and cassis fruit is substantial enough to compete. Power and balance are here in abundance.
