Lindvig runs his winery in the Cascade foothills town of Carnation, Wash., and has crafted a delicious red wine that undoubtedly is unique to Pleasant Hill. This is a blend of Lemberger (62%), Petit Verdot (31%) and Tannat. It opens with exotic aromas of bay rum, nutmeg, clove, boysenberry and cola, followed by plush flavors of blueberry, boysenberry, black currant, Earl Grey tea and chocolate.
