Red Mountain Reserve Red Bordeaux Blend

Minty hazelnuts - and interesting nose for sure.

Hefty wine, big bodied dark fruits, some mint, tobacco, and stone. A subtle sweetness in the body, with low acidity and grill plank tannins.

Founder's Reserve Columbia Valley Red Blend 2019

The third and latest release of the Founder’s Reserve follows the tradition of the previous versions; a Bordeaux blend of sorts with a dollop of Syrah. Popped and poured; consumed over four days. The wine came across disjointed on Day 1 & 2. By day 3 it started to turn into something more interesting and Day 4 was best. Mostly blue and black fruits with dark cherries and figs, pipe tobacco, minerals, baking spices, a small touch of vanilla. Medium tannin. Medium plus acid. Finish is satisfying. A touch of heat on the finish but just. These need a few years to show their best. — 7 days ago

L'Ecole No. 41

Columbia Valley Merlot 2017

Dark red purple with near black core. Inviting nose of black plum and graphite. Full-bodied palate confirms the nose with moderately firm tannins and medium plus acidity. Lingering dark graphite finish. This is what a “stinkin’ Merlot” should be like. Big, plush, and dark fruity. The almost Bordeaux-like mineral note adds to its capacity as a classic accompaniment to light cuts of beef, medium cheeses, or everyday casseroles. I’m enjoying with beef stroganoff. Drink now through 2025. — 9 days ago

Merlot got a bad rap. Sometimes deservedly. Tell the naysayers to watch Sideways. They might get it. Then again.

@Daniel Bloom - No one should watch Sideways for anything other than entertainment value. It is a nice enough movie, but a poor commentary on wine.

Avennia

Sestina Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

One hour splash decant.
Cranberries and cherries, herbal seasonings, hints of black tea, leather and smoke. Medium-plus body, good length, good amount of acidity. Overall impression is cool-climate, more Bdx-like than Californian. At the moment a tad reticent, certainly not extracted or hedonistic.
I suppose some extra cellartime will add depth, body and complexity. Promising.
