A rich and full-bodied Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah Washington red wine blend from a well-known and well-trusted producer, Joel Gott. Lovely ripe cherry aromas on the nose and so bright with ripe raspberry, red fruit, cherry, toasty vanilla and oaks spice flavours on the palate. Pair with gourmet burgers.

Food pairings: roast chicken, smoked roast turkey, onion pie.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This wine represents everything that is good and pure about Washington Bordeaux varietals. The wine is loaded with savoury herbs, black raspberry, crushed plum, and a hint of cassis. There's tobacco and dried flowers, as well as some mocha and toasted chestnut notes. Serve with seared Elk tataki. 92 Points.
Washington Red 2016 is a rich, full-bodied, red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Malbec. Aromatic with ripe raspberry, dark plum and cherry on the nose. Dry, juicy with ripe red raspberry, dark cherry, plum, savoury herb, spices, coffee and vanilla flavours on the palate. Pair with BBQ beef ribs. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
