J. Bookwalter Notebook WA/8NV
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
Our eighth Notebook wine is a delicious, fruit-driven blend of several traditional red varieties that flourish in our hot, dry climate. Aromatically rich and delicious to quaff, this is an easy drinking dry wine that drink well above its price and category. Unlike so many sweet offerings available today, this dry wine is ready to drink from summer barbecues through winter meals. The wine's aromatics display savory 2- and 3-year barrel-aged complexity. There's heaps of red fruits like black cherries, plums, red currants and figs wrapped with resin, caramel, cedar and hints of fresh and dried herbs. Succulent smooth fruit begins, with flavors of baker's chocolate, pomegranate, toast, dried herbs, tobacco and cola finish. The combination of long-aged powerful Cabernet and fresh, fruity, young Merlot fill this affordable wine.
