External Reviews for 428 Wines Boulevard
Dark cherries and chocolat, with an elegant finish that lingers forever. A wonderful food wine. Great with daube', stews, pasta, skirt steak, and of course, cassoulet! Yum
The Boulevard certainly stands out as one of the best red blends I've had in a while! The nose is complex with hints of chocolate cookies and peanut butter finishing with dried currants. Once you take a sip it's like the spin at the end of the run-way. It starts out with some "twizzler action" and a nice mouth feel - that leads into a soy sauce component on the mid palate. The finish has a unique black cherry sweetness that is not all over the top, but lingers, like the smoky gaze of a supermodel.
This is the first release from 428, but from the taste of things, they are certainly not just the new kids on the block. This wine has gorgeous brown-burgundy color, with a tantalizing nose floating with caramel and espresso notes. The taste is all smoky toffee, with a finish like peanut brittle and sesame seeds. A very drinkable red blend, which will age well but tastes fantastic TODAY! So buy some, TODAY!
428 is definitely going to be a walla walla winery to watch out for. Modestly sized, they debut on the scene with HUGE originality points and a well-balanced wine with great structure. On the nose there's a great sensation of toffee, espresso, chocolate, etc. It's just great. The taste is a fruity combination of the aforementioned aromas albeit with a more cocoa/coffee tilt. Combine that with a smooth and creamy mouth sensation and the finish more than affirms 428 is on to something!
