Mullan Road Cellars Red Wine Blend 2013
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
|Brand||Mullan Road Cellars|
This wine is principally Cabernet Sauvignon (57%) and Merlot (34%) along with dashes of Cabernet Franc and Malbec. A blend of Royal Slope and Seven Hills Vineyard fruit, it opens with aromas of black cherry, cigar box, green herbs, dried mint and potpourri. The herb and dark-fruit flavors are ripe and expressive, with the tannins combed to a fine sheen.
Firm in texture, with crinkly tannins around a focused core of plum, blackberry and cedar flavors, finishing with persistence. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2017. 3,100 cases made.
