Best Buy! Seattle-based Precept Wine has rescued and revived this Yakima Valley brand that dates to 1984, and it continues to keep the prices affordable. Contributing vineyards include Canyon Vineyard Ranch, Doval, Oasis and Wallula. There’s no shortage of fruit in the nose with its hints of cherry pie crust, vanilla and strawberry fruit leather. Thankfully, there’s a match on the entry to the palate. Plums join the other flavors as the acidity — a by-product of Sangiovese (5%) — stays ahead of the moderate tannins.
