Of the Leutholds’s 95 career Platinums, 10 of those have been vineyard designates of McKinley Springs, owned and operated by Rob Andrews and brother-in-law Doug Rowell. It’s a fetching example with layers of black raspberry and blueberry compote, backed by spice box notes, rewarding tannins and a pinch of mint. Awards: Cascadia International (gold), Seattle Wine Awards (gold).
