Fruity nose of berries
Juicy, flavorful palate
Finish of strawberries and cherries with a hint of chocolate; moderate tannins
I've enjoyed this wine several times in the past, and the 2003 bottling appears to be quite good. It's an interesting blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc from Washington State. In fact, the CMS name simply refers to these grapes. I paid $12 for the wine and feel that it's a good buy. Raise a glass!
