Best Buy! The Northwest’s largest winery continues to do a marvelous job with this tier, and the amount of expression is rather remarkable at this price point. Aromas include root beer barrel candy with plums, dried cherry, chocolate and vanilla. The drink, juiced up by Syrah (11%), is fruit-driven with plum, strawberry, dark cherry and chocolate flavors with mouth-filling tannins. Celebrity chef Bobby Flay might pair this with a balsamic reduction, lamb or Chinese food.
