Mercer Estates Winery 2016 Reserve Cavalie Red Blend, Horse Heaven Hills, $42

By on May 27, 2019

This is a delicious blend based on Bordeaux varieties Merlot (51%), Cabernet Sauvignon (23%)  Malbec (11%) and Petit Verdot (8%) that’s joined by a juicy dose of Syrah (7%). It’s an estate-grown wine driven by blackberry and dark cherry with subtle oak spices that delivers in a rich and rewarding fashion, capped by blackberry jam. This earned a double gold medal at the 2019 Cascadia International Wine Competition.
