"We had my husband's 50th birthday party last weekend and served Old Guy Red. It was a big hit! My husband was thrilled and our guests commented on the high quality of the wine. It was such a fun addition to our party. Thanks for all of your help in making it special."

Description if Custom-Designed


Deep and smooth are the touchstones of this year's vintage. Blackberry, fig, vanilla, and black currant predominate on the nose followed by a palate that is initially dry and clean, followed by juicy red fruit flavors leading to underlying fig, tobacco leaf, and wood. The strong structural support of tannins and acidity leads to a meaty finish of dark berries and plum that will make you want to stock up before it's too late!

232 Cases. Bottled Aug 2015.

    Robert Delf’s Left Bank Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Merlot (35%), Malbec (10%), Petit Verdot (10%) and Carménère carries aromas of sweet toast, Chukar Cherry, strawberry candy and rosemary that are mirrored in the mouth, backed by nicely managed tannins, blueberry acidity and a finish of cherry cola with vanilla.

    Wine Press NW Award, December 2016

     

    Versatile winemaker Robert Smasne obtained grapes from Tasawik, Spofford Station, Double Canyon and Coyote Canyon vineyards, then combined them into a blend of Malbec (25%), Merlot (20%), Petit Verdot (20%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%), Syrah (15%) and Carménère and aged it for 21 months in 50% new French oak. The result is a wine with a bit of leather in its nose, then a hint of blueberry, fulsome, grapy flavors and with its tannins well in check. (474 cases, 13.9% alc.)

    OUTSTANDING
    Great Northwest Wine, April 2016

     

    While its price remains stable, the blending program for Robert Delf’s Intrigue is rather fluid each year. This time, the Kirkland, Wash., vintner and winemaker Robert Smasne focused on Bordeaux varieties – Malbec (25%), Merlot (20%), Petit Verdot (20%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Carménère (5%) with Syrah as a backblender (15%). Their results are bodacious, starting with a nose that might make you go cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs cereal, joined by black plum, lavender, rosemary and a pinch of black pepper. There’s elegance to the mouth feel and flavors of cassis and plums as juicy acidity and beautiful grip to the tannins funnel into a finish of anise with more pepper and chocolate.
