Airfield Estates 2014 Vineyard Salute Bombshell Red Wine, Yakima Valley, $18

By on August 19, 2017

One of Washington state’s premier family-owned producers delivers quality again with their Syrah-based blend that’s food-friendly and easy to get into. Merlot (37%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) provide plenty of structure behind the aromas of black cherry, cocoa powder and minerality. Plum-skin tannins provide early grip that’s joined by Marionberry and Montmorency cherry. Enjoy with tapas, a well-marbled steak or barbecued fare.
