Region: Columbia Valley (WA)
Variety: Bordeaux-style Red Blend
Winery: Bergevin Lane
Taster: Paul Gregutt
A riot of licorice, cassis, toast and berry, this 83% Cabernet Sauvignon/17% Petit Verdot Bordeaux-style blend is currently showing a lot of barrel flavors, with subdued but not insignificant fruit. Medium-grained tannins give the finish some gravitas.
