Cadence Tapteil Vineyard Red Mountain 2006

Cadence is dedicated to showcasing the finest vineyard sites in Washington State. Our Bordeaux-styled blends are our interpretation of the best qualities reflected in Washington’s greatest vineyard terroir. We believe blending creates a balanced wine of greater character than the individual components. Our wines express the power, intensity or elegance of the vineyard reflected in the characteristics of the varietals on the vineyard site.
I'm a big fan of cadence, there stuff is usually reasonably priced on all their wines show power and grace. This wine is probably the best example of that, think iron fist in a velvet glove. Lots of black and blue fruits on the nose, the palette shows lots of dense layers of fruit, wood, and spice. Highly structured and kept fresh by decent acidity. On a subsequent taste, the tannins have mellowed and allowed some nice earth notes to come through.
