Eye of the Needle Winery NV The Eye, Columbia Valley, $18

By on November 19, 2020

Woodinville vintner Bob Bullock hits the bull’s eye again with his remarkable red that leads with Cabernet Sauvignon and blends in Merlot and Petit Verdot. The nose and structure reveal its pedigree with high-toned black and blue fruit, inviting spices, a scrape of dark chocolate and a finish of lovely, smooth tannins. A non-disclosure agreement prevents the Bullocks from saying who partnered with him on this bottling, but we can mention that it earned a best-of-class award for red blends that lead with Cabernet Sauvignon, which is a heady category for Washington and one of the largest at the 2020 Cascadia International Wine Competition. It also placed on The Seattle Times list of Top 20 Under $20 for 2020.
