Dunham Cellars 2016 Three Legged Red, Washington, $19

By on May 3, 2019

Three Legged Red is the late Eric Dunham’s tribute to the dog he rescued that became the winery mascot. And a fitting tribute it is for a friendly canine because it’s an easy-to-love red blend hamed for Port, the dog with two legs on the port side. As a Syrah-dominated blend, the 2016 version leads with aromas of cured meat, blackberry and plum, with more of the same in the mouth. This friendly red earned a best-of-class award and the Tom Drumheller Memorial Award at the 2019 Cascadia International Wine Competition for the best wine produced by a Walla Walla winery.
