Thurston Wolfe 2010 The Geologist Premium Red Wine, Washington, $50

By on April 10, 2015

Thurston Wolfe-The-Geologist-Premium-Red-Wine-2010-BottleProsser vintner Wade Wolfe racked up gold medals along the West Coast for the 2009 version of this blend, and this vintage seems headed in the same direction. He’s gone toward a Mertiage-style with the melange of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Petit Verdot (38%) and Malbec, and its filled with dark purple tones of dark cherry, blackberry, elderberry, chocolate, vanilla and dried herbs. It’s beautiful structure with notes of minerality, balanced tannins and finish of Western serviceberry also bode well for the future.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 100 cases
