Maryhill Winery 2013 Proprietor’s Reserve Serendipity Red Wine, Columbia Valley, $36

By on June 13, 2016

maryhill serendipityRichard Batchelor has done it again for Maryhill, earning another gold medal. This red blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 9% Malbec 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot adds one more honor for a run of excellence. On the nose, it’s fruit forward with bright Bing cherries, red florals and warm spice. On the palate, it’s big cherries, loganberries, then a kiss of red currant and blueberry. It finishes long with silky, blueberry-edged, refined tannins and a nip of acidity that calls for another sip just to make sure it’s as elegant, savory and refined as the first taste indicated. And then without any pause, you’ll be reaching for your glass again. This earned a gold medal and best of class at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
