Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored wine from Washington State opens with a cola and blueberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full boded, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a mineral infused red raspberry with notes of oak and red licorice. The finish is dry and its acidity, flavors and moderate tannins show nice length. This wine would pair well with slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Alluring cherry and cream aromas hint at this wine's lush, juicy mouthfeel, where lovely Cabernet Sauvignon layers of black cherry, cassis and spice are underscored by the density and richness of great Phinny Hill Vineyard Syrah.
