Pomeroy Cellars 2015 Lucia No. 47 Red Wine, Yakima Valley, $40
This young Southwest Washington winery benefits from Yakima Valley sources, including famed DuBrul Vineyard, and those come into play for this straight-forward proprietary blend that leads with Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and is followed by Syrah (30%) and Merlot. A welcoming nose of dusty cherry and plum shows balance with light toast and lilac. There’s lots of depth to the flavors of Marionberry, pomegranate and Western serviceberry as soft tannins finish with plums and chocolate. The Brink family plans to continue growing their wine program, and the peaceful forest-lined setting of great grandmother Angelina Pomeroy’s homestead is on the National Register of Historic Properties.
