My first Washington State wine, courtesy of Diageo free product! Mature deep intensity colour: garnet-to-brick. On breathing, opened into toasty oak spice with eucalyptus lift, over core of blackcurrant fruit on the nose. Despite some tannin / acid structure, overall smooth, silky medium-to-full bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant matured-fruit palate with some length. Overall good. Would have been disappointed if bought retail.
