Red Mountain Majesties

Red Mountain is Washington's smallest AVA (by area) and one of the newest being established as a unique subregion of Yakima Valley in 2001.  Some of Washington's most acclaimed wines are sourcing grapes from vineyards here most notably Quilceda Creek.  Many wines made from Red Mountain are single vineyard giving the curious oenophile great opportunity to experience true WA terrior.  The wines coming out of this tiny area display high concentration of fruit with powerful tannins.  Many wines from Red Mountain are easy matches for similarly and even higher priced Napa Valley wines.

At six years old this wine is still quite young and closed off owing to some serious red mountain structure. After a day, the wine opened to show red currants, clove, pencil lead, and chocolate. High but fine tannins with decent acidity. Definitely one for the cellar.
