Three Rivers Winery Red Blend Columbia Valley River's Red 2009

Member Review by jtryka:

This one has a lovely deep ruby color, with wonderful notes of green grass and ripe red fruit on the nose. The taste is a lovely combination of black fruit up front, accented with a bit of anise and black pepper, that transitions to some lovely ripe plum with a luscious mouthfeel. The tannins are nicely structured for such a young wine, leading to a long, dry finish.

Three Rivers Winery is a destination winery located just west of Walla Walla, Washington in the Columbia Valley wine country. Our award-winning white and red wines are sourced from established vineyards and famed appellations from across Washington State. Visit Three Rivers Winery for a wine tasting and winery tour. And buy Three Rivers wine online or in our onsite gift shop. Why Three Rivers? The name Three Rivers represents the three most prominent rivers in the appellations from which our winery sources its grapes-the Columbia, Snake, and Walla Walla Rivers. The Winery. In 1999, owners of Three Rivers Winery broke ground on the 16-acre site that is now home to our 18,000 sq. ft. facility. Set atop a small knoll overlooking the surrounding vineyards and Mill Creek, the winery features stunning views of the Blue Mountains in the distance and the nearby Whitman Mission. Inside, the winery includes two distinct areas: a 14,000 sq. ft. cellar and barrel room used for the production and storage of fine wines, and a 4,000 sq. ft. tasting room, meeting room, and wine retail store open to the public. In addition, the winery features three short holes of golf for winery guests. The interior design of the building blends a rustic feel into the contemporary structure, with vaulted ceilings and exposed timber trusses. The meeting room accommodates up to 75 people for business meetings and other group functions, and is available to rent. In the adjacent tasting room and retail space, winery visitors can taste and purchase Three Rivers' wine and related merchandise, or simply relax next to one of the stone hearth fireplaces-one inside and the other outside on the spacious deck.

This wine is over-oaked and I'm a fan of the oak flavor. I would rather have saved my money for another Walla Walla wine had I just sampled this prior to buying.

Chocolate-cherry aroma. Bright fruity flavors when colder. Slightly dry but buttery with tobacco. Can be warm when decanted well. Needs to breathe. Makes mouth black. Pairings: heavy tomato dishes?
