Barrister Winery 2014 Petit Verdot, Columbia Valley, $41

By on April 18, 2018

Attorney-led Barrister Winery in Spokane, Wash., produced this standout. Smoky aromas of dark plum, cherry pipe tobacco, espresso, and raisins, mingle on the palate with spicy peppery blackberry, and racing acid keeps this Petit Verdot bright and exciting. This 2014 vintage is showing bright and fresh, but with a maturity in body that one would expect from Dionysus fruit. This won double gold and best in class at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 146 cases

Alcohol: 15.6%
