The Untold Story is deeply colored, with a dark purple core fading out to a bright magenta rim. The color is reflective of the aromatics: smoky black fruits, blueberries, blackberries, dark plums and cassis swirl about, adding incense and graphite alongside crushed herbs as it gets air. The palate is layered with a plush texture that perfectly balances fresh acidity and fine tannins leading to a lengthy finish that carries a delightful mix of bright rosemary, fresh berries and cracked spice.

Bright, dark red with ruby tones. Redcurrant, raspberry, milk chocolate, mocha and musky herbs on the expressive nose. Supple, juicy, dry and firm, with excellent intensity; in fact, the wine's core of berry and licorice flavors still needs time to unwind. As much saline as sweet, this rather structured entry-level wine has the balance for mid-term aging. Finishes firmly tannic, lightly saline and long.

Sourced from the greater Columbia Valley, the 2018 The Untold Story is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Syrah, 15% Merlot and 5% Grenache and opens to a nose of red and black fruit with a dusty edge. Medium-bodied, flavors of dusty plum essence sway with flavors of redcurrant and hints of cassis, followed by lifting tannins across the mid-palate. The wine lingers with a solid finish that delivers well for the price. 24,000 bottles were produced. Keenly priced.
