Roller Girl Wines 2015 Jammer Red Wine, Walla Walla Valley, $20
This second label for SuLei Cellars, co-owned by Elaine Jomwe — a five-year veteran of the Walla Walla Sweets Roller Girls — and winemaker Tanya Woodley, continues to rock with Walla Walla Valley fruit, pulling the Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) from Bergevin Springs Vineyards and XL Vineyard while blending Malbec (15%) from Les Collines Vineyard. Lovely aromas of blueberry, cinnamon toast and black cherry transition easily to creamy flavors of cherry, blackberry and sweet herbs. Fine-grained tannins blossom slowly, leading to a suave finish of maple butter and vanilla. Our panel enjoyed the 2015 as much as the 2013, and these wines can be found throughout Washington, in Hood River, Ore., at their winery near Milton-Freewater, Ore., and at their tasting room near The Marcus Whitman Hotel.
