Carnation, Wash., winemaker Larry Lindvig has crafted a Bordeaux-style blend using Cabernet Sauvignon (56%) off Elephant Mountain and backed by Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec from K.B. Walker Vineyard. It opens with aromas of blueberry, Saskatoon serviceberry, cedar, and lime zest, followed by bright flavors of pomegranate and boysenberry. Restrained tannins and ample acidity lift up all the purple and red fruit, making this a delicious wine to serve with lean cuts of beef and even mild curries.
