2016 Stateline Red
This vintage contains 3 varieties, including, Merlot, Cab Sauv and 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 composed of 57% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. It displays a ruby color and attractive aromas of raspberry, cherry, plum, black roses, mulberry, tobacco and wood smoke. The flavors mirror the aromatics with generous yet focused dark fruit that are underlain with licorice, cocoa, French roast and earth. The chewy textured back picks up macerated berries, roasted nuts, mocha and graphite, followed by a smooth tannin finish. 18.5/20 points.
