2013 Masterpiece Red
Our finest master blend, simply identified as Series #4, is the second in what is intended to become a full series of select blends from very small lots from Walla Walla Valley’s most select premier vineyards.
BLEND: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
APPELLATION: Walla Walla Valley
WINEMAKER: Brian Carlson
Alcohol 14.5%, Total Acid 5.9 g/L, pH 3.86
Barrel aged in 40% new American and European oak
A robust and full-bodied wine densely flavored with spiced plums, hints of toast and anise. Richly structured and satisfying with thick fruit balanced by velvety tannins and a smooth toasted oak finish. This wine is big and bold with great complexity. Ready to drink now, but firm enough to reward those who prefer cellar aged wine.
