A balanced, supple young blended red, it includes all five Bordeaux varietals in the blend. The vineyards read like a list of who's who in Washington viticulture — Ciel du Cheval, DuBrul, Pepper Bridge and more. Pretty berries and cherries set the fruit, and the wine has a classy, confident style all through the finish.
