Amelia Wynn 2013 The Dwelley Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla Valley, $32
Amelia Wynn winery on Bainbridge Island is owned and operated by Paul Bianchi, who also runs a tasting room not far from the Bainbridge ferry. He launched the winery in 2008, naming it after his twin granddaughters.
Bianchi brought in Walla Walla Valley grapes from Dwelley Vineyard for this gold medal winner. On the nose, it shows off spice, blackberries and elegant use of oak, including 50% used American barrels. In the mouth, it displays blackberry, brambleberry, graphite and firm tannins, with a lingering touch of spice at the end.
This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
