Pepper Bridge Winery 2015 Estate Vineyards Trine Red Wine, Walla Walla Valley, $65

By on January 29, 2019

Third-generation vintner Jean-Francois Pellet takes a Left Bank Bordeaux approach as Cabernet Franc (40%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (28%) combine to dominate this blend with Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot adding complexity and structure. Estate sites such as Seven Hills, Octave and namesake Pepper Bridge Vineyard set the table for a long, approachable and age-worthy red that’s framed by sweet herbs, chalkboard dust, cherry, red currant, raspberry and stately tannins.
