Fall Line Winery, Red Willow Vineyard 2012, Yakima Valley, Washington
Tasting Note: An elegant, red-fruit leaning, cabernet-franc-led red blend from Washington state that is a versatile-food companion.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of red plum, raspberry, violet, forest floor and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied wine has a silky mouthfeel with ripe, well-integrated, medium tannin.
There is flavor concentration mid-palate, even as the wine is only adolescent in complexity.
Bottle Note: Cabernet Franc (36%), Merlot (35%), Petit Verdot (18%), Cabernet Sauvignon (11%).
