This wine was aged in stainless steel—a rarity for a red in Washington. Aromas of herb, pepper, plum and dark fruit are followed by plump fruit flavors that paint a bit around the edges. There's much to enjoy here, though the middle seems somewhat missing. Put it on the dinner table to see it at its best.
