Glass "cork" is very cool. Purple in color. This is a pretty classic Washington Cabernet. The nose has cassis, black cherries, tobacco and slight bell pepper. On the palate, this is in a good place if still a bit young. Cassis layered with tobacco and earth. Some tannins. Slightly bitter in a good way. Nice finish. This works well with food. Probably will continue to mature and layer, but not really get better, just different. Very nice wine right now.
