Burnt Bridge Cellars in downtown Vancouver, Wash., sourced fruit from the Walla Walla Valley for its 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, blending in some Merlot (17%) for added backbone. Deft oak management by winemaker Ben Stuart, a graduate of Walla Walla Community College’s vaunted winemaking program, shows in its aromas, with a touch of mint and black cherry. On the palate, blackberry and blueberry reinforce the black cherry, with firm tannins in its finish. This product of McKibben-farmed Les Collines Vineyard earned a gold medal and best of class sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.
