2007 Kamiak Rock Lake Red Columbia Valley 13.9% $13

Unspecified percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.

Funky on the nose with plenty of hints of truffle, game, and pencil eraser over plummy, dried berry, black cherry and herb laced fruit. A bit plump on entry, but with plenty of acidity to keep this focused in the mouth. There's plenty of truffle and black currant fruit right on entry, then it lightens up a bit and reveals a bit more detail with raspberry and cranberry flavors emerging along with a gamy, beefy edge on the back end. The fruit is clear and persistent on the finish which still shows some tannin and a hint of peppery spice but leaves the palate refreshed, if a touch hot. This is an excellent value. 88pts Find it Here

    Interesting how Washington represents here. They do very nice blends at great prices. I've become a big fan.

    Washington is doing some greet work these days, too bad many of the wines are not widely distributed.

    MrWinelover, there's a lot of great resources here on Snooth, and keep trying wines, it's the best way to learn!

  • You might want to try Bogle Phantom at $ 15.99 in Cherry Hill, NJ. It's a blend of Old vine zin, old vine mourvedre and petite syrah. Their petite S and Old vine zin are standalone winners around $ 8 and embarrassingly low priced for the quality delivered.

    Coppola Rosso is a blend that varies contents each year, they used to publish what is in it, but they no longer do. It is rather raw, but with 3 yrs of aging, it becomes a lovely Italianesque wine, but with more body.
