Assessment: This release has well balanced tannins and acidity. It’s fruit forward with a bit of the earthiness that typically comes with wines from the Pacific Northwest. It’s medium bodied with a silky texture. Most importantly it tastes good, it’s a good value, and any guest outside of those with a preference for sweet wines will enjoy it. This is a wine well suited to take advantage of a case discount. Ready to drink now.
