Tom Casagrande

This is Walla Walla Valley AVA, not Columbia Valley.

Nose has that wet fire pit ash note that is so characteristic of Walla Walla, along with warm, ripe mulled raspberry fruit and crushed stone dust. The palate is broad and very savory, with loads of smoky stones and berry ooze. The only quibble I have is a bit of heat in the finish. It’s 14.9%, and other wineries here tend to have lower alcohol and still achieve this level of ripeness, so hopefully they’ll dial it back a bit in future vintages. Nice accompaniment to watching UMass try to make it to the Frozen Four for the first time.
