2017 Three Rivers Sreamlet Red, Columbia Valley
This is a vibrant wine with rich aromas of soy sauce, blueberries and spice. Dark fruit swirls on the palate with accents of clove and char that encapsulate this earthy, complex wine. Firm tannins linger on the finish and add structure to this new world red blend.
Syrah 33%, Cabernet Sauvignon 34%, Merlot 33%
16 months in 40% new French oak
2017 started on the same track as 2016 with bud break a bit ahead of average and a hot summer. September and October cooled and allowed us some relief. The quality looks great from this warm vintage. Bright flavors and acidity were achieved in this ideal vintage.
