Frenchtown Red Blend 2019

Time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

Purple in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of black plums, black currants, oak, spices, tobacco, vanilla, licorice, light alcohol, blueberries, light earth, pencil lead, coffee, chocolates and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, chocolates, tobacco and peppercorn.

Short finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a young red blend from Columbia Valley. Fruit forward with a nice mouthfeel.

A good everyday wine to sip on by the porch. Easy drinking, tangy and interesting.

Good now, and will be better in a couple of years. Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

A blend of 45% Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Syrah and Grenache. Aged for 9 months in neutral oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Abbey-Harris Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Striking and expansive nose of red spring flowers, ripe strawberries, blood orange, diced habanero pepper, fresh herbs, a forest floor of pine needles. Palette is less interpretable; delicate, beautiful, simple. Structurally nice with a solid tannin/acid backbone. — 23 days ago

Weighty. A little too much fat but beautiful zippy fruits and a powerful nose that made me dive deep into the realm of this wine. — 2 days ago

Hawk Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

My first foray into AF wines was delicious! Cherries, raspberry bramble but not fruit bomb-y up front. Then graphite and slate minerality, leather, a touch of brine, calvestrano olive, and a touch of white pepper on the finish. Balanced and layered. Loved it. — a month ago

Light, raspberry, and earth on the first taste. Minerality, a little wood and fruit on the nose. Needs some time to open up, but has a great balance and complexity of fruit, bramble, pencil shavings and some brininess. Very good bottle.

Peters Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

Subtle earth tones with a wonderful balance of fruit, brininess, and umami. Not a fruit bomb, but instead tastes Burgundian. Great job by Anthill! — 8 days ago
