Red-ruby. Aromas of black cherry, licorice, mint and tarry oak; seems less evolved than the 2002 Quinault. Then dense, tightly wound and primary, and not yet showing the personality of the Quinault. Finishes with substantial but sweet tannins and good chewy length.

This shows complexity and length. Plenty of blackberry and toasted oak on the nose follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with a solid core of fruit and firm tannins. Long and silky finish. Lots going on in the glass. This is a new tiny-production, handmade wine that was fermented in 225-liter barrels. From Chateau Quinault.
