Apparently made from Washington state (Red Mountain) fruit that is then shipped to Ohio. Packaged in a Burgundy shaped bottle. This was very good and really made me take notice upon trying. Garnet in color with purple hues, mostly opaque and bright. The nose needs some air to get going, but then shows nice black cherries, figs, roasted vegetables, and slight coffee grounds. Full bodied. Firm tannins. On the palate, lots of black cherry fruit along with a slight coffee and spice. Good acidity. Long finish. This could use a few more years in a good cellar to get where it is going but it still drinks nicely now. If one doesn't mind the tannins, drink on its own or else, drink with food. This is very food friendly with just about anything other than seafood. A roast or steak would be excellent. Drink over the next ten to fifteen years.
