This Woodinville, Wash., winery is named for a meteorological anomaly that occurs in and near Woodinville. In a nutshell, the so-called Puget Sound Convergence Zone occurs when air flow is split by the Olympic Mountains and converges in north King and south Snohomish counties, causing greater rainfall than nearby communities. Scott Greenberg is the winemaker for this small-production winery, and he has crafted a delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It opens with aromas of raspberry, mint, lime zest and black cherry, followed by flavors of chocolate, coffee, boysenberry and blackberry. It’s all backed with gentle tannins for youthful approachability.
