“High-toned scents of violet and tree-bark open up to a surprisingly fruit-forward carmenere, the Bordelaise variety that reemerged in Chile and now, along with Malbec, has begun a migration to the Pacific Northwest. Its plum flavors have a smoky tinge, as if dusted in ash; a thrust of purple for barbeque.”

EXCELLENT
by Great Northwest Wine

Kirkland vintner Bob Delf continues to offer one of the Northwest’s best examples of this still-obscure Bordeaux variety. Classic and alluring aromas of green peppercorns, oregano and green olive meld with fruity notes of black plum, currant and cherry, along with clove, toasted oak and blackstrap molasses. There’s no disappointment on the palate where there’s smoky richness, succulence with cassis on the midpalate, and beautiful balance that carries into a tremendous farewell of Montmorency cherry. Everything is in place.
