2017 Three Rivers Svelte Bordeaux, Columbia Valley
91 Points - James Suckling
Our 2017 vintage showcases black cherry, espresso and anise with mouthwatering richness throughout the palate. The finish is firm yet ripe with structured tannins and soft acidity. Cellar for a few years to allow this wine to fully develop.
18 months in 100% 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.
