Woodinville winemaker Brian Carter’s entry-level red wine truly is a magical and eclectic blend of 12 varieties, leading with Cabernet Sauvignon (28%), Merlot (19%) and Syrah (12%). It takes on a theme of dark purple fruit, starting with aromas of blueberry taffy and black currant that are joined by lilac, lavender and roasted coffee. There’s a ton of fruit sitting in the mouth, featuring sweet blueberry and elderberry, followed by Bing cherry skin tannins and pepper. Potential pairings include pasta, grilled pizza or Rabbit Cacciatore.
