Angel Vine 2014 Les Collines Vineyard Zinfandel, Walla Walla Valley, $24
The McKibben family’s Les Collines Vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley raised the grapes for Angel Vine’s 2014 Zinfandel and the Carlton, Ore., winery turned them into a wine that exudes blackberries, herbs and a bare whiff of chocolate. In the mouth, the blackberries have a sweet, earthy presence, with a finish of smooth tannins and pleasing minerality. This bottling by the gregarious Ed Fus merited a gold medal and best of class at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.
