Owner Mike Andrews has become entranced in recent years with Spanish varieties, which he has planted along with 24 other varieties at his estate vineyard just eight miles north of the Columbia River. This blend includes 56% Tempranillo and 43% Graciano, and it is superb, with aromas of blueberry, crushed leaf, sarsaparilla and clove. On the palate, it shows off flavors of pomegranate, blueberry, red currant and pie cherry. This is a rich, rustic, robust red. It will pair nicely with roasted meats, empanadas, fettuccine Alfredo or carne asada.
