Bellevue businessman Terry Wells honors the winning tradition of Love That Red – an acclaimed Thoroughbred who ran at Santa Anita for Bob Baffert, the Triple Crown winning trainer – with this Washington winery brand. There’s a considerable pedigree to this Syrah with grapes from Boushey, Clifton Hill, Kiona and Stillwater Creek. They mount up for a dense, dark and inky ride that opens with extracted nose of blackberry, plum sauce, bittersweet chocolate and vanilla bean. There’s an easy pace to the structure of elderberry pie, blueberry juice and plum skin tannins that show nice integration. A firm hold of tannins and vanilla extract makes for a big showing at finish.
