Garagiste, Starfire Red 2016, Columbia Valley, Washington
Tasting Note: A smooth red blend from Columbia Valley that delights and abounds with supple red fruit.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a nose of red plum, red cherry, bramble and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied red blend is creamy in texture with medium-plus-intensity, red-fruit flavors suggested on the nose.
The wine is medium in acidity and is underpinned by silky, ripe, medium tannin.
There is some midpalate complexity as well.
A fun, yummy red blend that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
