||Bold Red Wine
||Columbia Valley, Washington State
Medium red color. On the nose are aromas of Montmorency cherry and pomegranate. On the palate are flavors of red fruits, clove, nutmeg, and allspice. Moderate tannins lead to a long and spicy finish.

2010 was the first in a series of cooler than normal vintages in central Washington. Bloom, veraison and harvest all occurred about 2 to 3 weeks later than usual, giving wines moderate color and tannin, but elevated acidity.
Pair with foods such as Tri tip steak or other grilled red meat.
