Who will like it
This is a juicy and complex Bordeaux blend wine from Columbia Valley in Washington that is worth the splurge if you are looking for a special bottle. With a balance of rich blackberry and plum fruit along with sweet oak and fine tannins, this is a wine that would be equally satisfying to a wide swath of red wine drinkers, but particularly those who appreciate a softer red with plush fruit.
Why we are highlighting this wine
Although pricier than most other wines feature in DFW Wine Finds, this is a bottle that drinks well above its price and will be an instant hit at any special occasion. It is also a wine that will age well for another 5 years, so it is a bottle you could buy now and hold for a few years in the right environment without reservation. If you want to taste it before you buy it, you can get a glass of this wine for $17 at North Italia in Plano’s Legacy West neighborhood.
