Cases produced 100
Sporting dark brick hues with indigo highlights, this inaugural vintage starts with toasty oak aromas that include plumbs, dark cherries, mocha, and tobacco. Dominated by Merlot, this wine is deep, layered, and full of flavor while sporting Washington State structure. This beautiful wine is already showing well and will continue to develop for 7-10 years.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate- (91-94 points) Barrel Sample
" A new wine made from two-thirds Merlot and one-third Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Counterpart offers beautiful notes of plums, graphite, black cherries and dark chocolate. Pure, surprisingly structured and full-bodied, it’s a big, rich 2015 that stays fresh and lively on the palate and is going to impress with short-term cellaring." Jeb Dunnuck
