Its not often I get to enjoy a wine this old from Washington so this was a treat.  Purple in color, ruby at the rim.  The nose has black rapsberries, spice, slight violet, minerals and slight bacon fat.  On the palate, this has plums, black olives and black raspberries.  Still drinking youthfully, it didnt seem 15 years old.  Maybe seven.  Deep and complex but delicious and gulpable.  Nice finish.  I am not sure this gets better but it should continue to mature.  very impressive wine.
