(February 2, 2021) ... A blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon / 36% Merlot / 9% Syrah and 6% Malbec - Gott makes some nice, easy drinking, drink-now California wines, but this is the first time I have seen the word "Washington" adorning his labels. Cassis, mocha, black cherry, and earthy notes kick this one off, then it opens to smoky-oaky, herbal and licorice. It's just on the cusp of blah - and when I put some of the wine into a decanter it totally killed the wine ... sadly this is just an old red wine that died before its time - to me 6 years from vintage date is still pretty young.
