Convergence Zone Cellars 2018 Virga Red Wine, Columbia Valley, $33

By on February 3, 2022

Snoqualmie Valley winemaker Scott Greenberg uses this Southern Rhône blend from a trio of acclaimed sites to pick off his fourth Platinum in the past five years. He leads with Mourvèdre (48%) off Weinbau, Syrah (36%) from Gamache and Grenache via Ciel du Cheval. It’s a dollop of Marionberry jam, a slice of cherry pie and a cellar-worthy supply of structure that’s capped by mocha and black olive. Awards: Sip magazine Best of the Northwest (double gold), Savor NW (gold).

Rating: Platinum, 93 points

Production: 79 cases
