Kana Winery 2009 Scarlet Fire Reserve Red, Columbia Valley, $25

By on May 10, 2015

Washington wineThis downtown Yakima winery celebrated its 10th anniversary last year, and they’ve enjoyed a string of success with this Mourvèdre-led blend. The nose is filled with aromas of blackberry cobbler, raspberry and red plum with milk chocolate, black licorice and cherry cough syrup. Alluring baking spices help make for a delicious and juicy entry of dark raspberry and fresh cranberries as the luscious structure leads with acidity well ahead of tannins. It earned a gold medal at the 2015 Seattle Wine and Food Experience Wine Awards.
