Vine 46 Winery 2015 Latitude Red Wine, Washington, $24

By on May 4, 2018

Vine 46 is a young winery in historic Lewiston, Idaho, but the grapes for its Latitude 2015 came from Washington vineyards. It’s an unusual but delicious blend of grapes from Bordeaux, Rhône, Spain and Italy. It opens with dark cherries and blackberries from its Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Malbec, Syrah and Sangiovese. Those fruit flavors are joined by a touch of Kalamata olive, spice and juicy acidity on the palate, then sandy tannins in its finish. This won double gold and best in class at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 210 cases

    I had this wine at the Eagle Island Art Festival. It was a compliment to a wonderful evening. I was invited to join a table of folks who had watched me paint. I noticed they had a bottle of light fruity wine. I didn’t want to join empty handed but I wanted something a little more medium bodied so I purchased the Vine 46 cabernet blend. I took my first sip and knew I had made a great choice. The others at the table loved it too.
