Brian Carter Cellars 2014 Trentenaire Red Wine, Columbia Valley, $50
Brian Carter could well be Washington’s master of blends, with his long tenure as a top winemaker and his enthusiasm for blending. His 2014 Trentenaire, which is Petit Verdot-focused, is named in recognition of his three decades of winemaking, and it’s a suitable tribute, with elegant blackberry, blueberry and blackcurrant aromatics and flavors, plus smooth, chocolaty tannins in its finish. Serve up a thyme and black pepper crusted steak or roast with it. This won a gold medal at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.
