Convergence Zone Cellars 2014 Storm Front BDX Blend, Columbia Valley, $28

By on August 16, 2018

Scott Greenberg uses Red Mountain producers E&E Shaw for the Merlot (37%) and Kiona’s Heart of the Hill for the Malbec (35%) in his Right Bank Bordeaux-style blend from the Yakima Valley that pulls Cabernet Franc (28%) from Dineen Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills. Aromas of dark cherry, elderberry and blueberry come with smoky oak, leading to flavors of plum jam and mint, framed by resolved blackberry tea tannins and a long trail of Bing cherry and blueberry. Our panels evaluated this wine twice in the first half of 2018, and both times it merited our top rating, including a gold medal at the 2018 Capital Wine Competition.
