JM Cellars 2015 Margaret’s Vineyard Carménère, Walla Walla Valley, $55

By on July 1, 2018

John Bigelow of Woodinville has crafted a lovely example of Carmenére from Margaret’s Vineyard, his 40-acre estate planting in the SeVein project on Walla Walla Valley. Black pepper, coffee, herbs and dark fruit fill its nose, then black pepper, plum and grippy tannins form the palate. This earned a gold medal at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 200 cases

Alcohol: 14.5%
