Airfield Estates winemaker Marcus Miller uses his family’s grapes in this continuing collaborative effort poured in a tasting room with views of Mount St. Helens and near Interstate 5. Voyageur is a Meritage-style of five Bordeaux varieties, and the nose offers sweet oak notes of chocolate, nutmeg and coffee, joined by cherry, currant, boysenberry and molasses. It comes with a big and bold entry of those dark fruit tones, offering a structure of fine-grained tannins that continue to expand. The finish is huge, bringing along hints of maple syrup and black pepper that should merry deliciously with pork ribs or a thick ribeye.
