Burnt Bridge Cellars 2014 Pont Brûlé Red Wine, Columbia Valley, $35

By on July 27, 2017

One of the southernmost wineries in Washington state, Burnt Bridge Cellars in Vancouver pulls from vineyards on both sides of the Oregon/Washington border in the Walla Walla Valley while constructing its delicious GSM-style blend. The Grenache (35%) comes from Upland Vineyard on Snipes Mountain in the middle of the Yakima Valley, and winemaker Ben Stuart includes Syrah (30%) from Les Collines near Walla Walla and Mourvèdre (35%) from Seven Hills near Milton-Freewater, Ore. It’s a wine redolent of blackberry jam, smoky cherry and cocoa powder in both the aromas and flavor profile, backed with spicy blueberry to make for a juicy finish.
