Tasted at Geneva wine tasting 4/18/2010.
When I first tasted this, I liked it at the price. Upon second tasting, I found the bouquet unpleasant and some of the complexity missing. At $17, I am sure I can do better.
Decanted 1 hour. Dark purple, going to burgundy at the edges. Nose of blackberry and plum. Nice attack, with blackberries and spices but some pretty serious alcohol heat on the finish. Yowza, this one is hot! Some more time in the decanter smoothed this one out a bit, but still some pretty harsh bite on the finish. Definitely decant, or hold for another 6 months to a year.
External Reviews for Murphy's Law Red Blend Columbia Valley Red
Please don;t jinx this fragrant and intense blend of 'All-Star' grapes from primo vineyards in the Pacific Northwest... A must-try!
From the Yakima and Columbia Valleys, Washington State this seven white grape variety blend has an austere style that offers way too much for the money. Imagine this wine profile - Alsace meets Northern Italy on the way to Slovenia. What can we say, it's multi-dimensional! 49% Sauvignon Blanc, 17% Chardonnay, 11% Gewurztraminer, 10% Pinot Gris, 6% Semillon, 4% Pinot Blanc & 3% Riesling.
