2014 Stateline Red
The 2014 Stateline Red is a bit of a "kitchen sink" blend containing Merlot, Cab Sauv, Malbec, Tempranillo, and a little bit of Petit Verdot! This wine is all about the fruit, with clean and well-ripened cherry, raspberry, and a touch of cassis. The mouth follows with red fruits, notes of ripe plum, and baking spices rounding it all out. The tannins are young and firm, and the acidity keeps it fresh and clean. We hope you enjoy this one as much as we do!
Review Of Washington Wines:
This is an amiable blend of 53% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 8% Tempranillo and 2% Petit Verdot. It shows a purplish ruby color and attractive aromas of raspberry, cherry, plum, red roses, bayberry, sweet tobacco and incense. The medium bodied flavors are generous and fleshy, yet focused, with notes of licorice, cocoa, coffee beans and dusty earth. The back picks up pressed berries, roasted nuts and mocha on the way to a chewy moderate tannin and acid finish. 18/20 points.
