This is a wonderful example of Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State.  It starts with a nose of dark cherry and blackberry with hints of toasty oak.  The mouth is an extension of the nose, with more blackberry, cherry, and a touch of black olive.  The tannins are smooth and refined leading you to lively acidity that lingers on the finish.  It’s a hearty wine that I look forward to pairing with a prime rib roast served with roasted rosemary potatoes!
