Pomeroy Cellars 2018 Lucia No. 47 Red Wine, Yakima Valley $44

By on January 18, 2022

The Brink family’s connection to the Lucia Valley north of Vancouver USA reaches back to the early 1900s, and his great grandmother attended and later taught for the Lucia School District – No. 47 on the state registry, not far down the list from L’Ecole No. 41 in the Walla Walla Valley. He pays tribute to her with this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (62%), Merlot (20%) and Syrah — all off famed DuBrul Vineyard. His deft touch with the balanced barrel program of 50% new French oak keeps the focus on that fruit — redolent of strawberry jam and cassis with tremendous structure and balance. The result is his first career Platinum. Award: Seattle Wine Awards (double gold).
