Cadence Red Bordeaux Blend Red Mountain Bel Canto Cara Mia Vineyard 2006
93 points Wine & Spirits: A powerhouse blend of cabernet franc and merlot... rich notes of plum, violet and star anise. It's all sweet heat on the palate, that rich plum meeting lavender and a dark, woodsy bottom note. Like most Red Mountain reds, this will need time; then decant and serve with skirt steak off the grill. 460 cases. (Oct 2009)

Our Bordeaux-styled blends are our interpretation of the best qualities reflected in Washington’s greatest vineyard terroir.
