Flying Trout, Cutthroat 2015, Columbia Valley, Washington
Tasting Note: Who knew malbec and syrah would pair so well in a red blend?
Deep-intensity ruby in color this wine has an aromatic nose of black cherry, red plum, black currant and cranberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied malbec-syrah blend displays concentrated black and red fruit flavors suggested on the nose along with some white blossom on the finish.
There is mid-palate complexity coupled with smooth, medium-plus tannin.
An elegant red blend and intriguing grape varietal combination.
Bottle Note: 64% Malbec. 36% Syrah.
