chateau-faire-le-pont-confluence-red-wine-2011Wenatchee winemaker Doug Brazil creates this in a Meritage style with a blend of  Cabernet Sauvignon (33%,) Malbec (25%), Petit Verdot (18%), Merlot (16%) and Cabernet Franc, with the majority of the fruit coming from Elerding Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills. Inky purple colors give way to flavors of raspberry, chocolate, grilled spicy meats and ripe plum, all backed with bright acidity and toasty barrel notes. This is a wine to savor with a great meal, and it earned a double gold at the North Central Washington Wine Awards.
