2009 Duck Pond Red Blend Wahluke Slope, Columbia Valley, WA 14.5% $15

A blend of unspecified percentages of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Barbera.

Fairly oak at first sniff but lurking under the veneer of wood lies some attractive herbal notes and spicy, fresh black fruits. Bright and rather taut on entry with lovely black plum skin fruit that plays off the nuanced oak spice of the palate. Blackberries and black currants join in on the midpalate with some dusty cinnamon notes, and a feathery edge of dried herbs all lead to a moderately long, lightly spicy and freshly fruited finish that shows a touch of heat. A bit unusual but a lovely combination of fruit and strictness in the mouth. 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.
