Bordeaux Blend "Dauntless" (Airfield Estates)

69% Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabe from Airfield Estates, Red "Dauntless", Colum

Vintage: 2015
Description: Airfield Estates, Red "Dauntless", Columbia Valley, Washington State 2015 69% Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot Black Plum & Redcurrant, Roasted Cacao Nibs & Peppercorns It's quite possible that the producers of Washington's Yakima and Colombia valleys have recognized Merlot's greatness more than any other wine region of the new world. Here, as in Bordeaux's Right Bank, it doesn't play second fiddle to half-brother, Cabernet Sauvignon, and speaking of Bordeaux, this Merlot-piloted blend from Airfield contains each of the variety's colleagues from its home turf. Even Petit Verdot, which is typically found in the vineyards of the Left Bank makes an appearance, well suited to the hot dry conditions east of the Cascades. Serving Suggestion: Filet mignon w/ saut├ęd flat beans & boiled fingerling potatoes w/ chives. Hearty empanadas w/ mole, sweet potato, & tempeh (or dark meat of turkey for a more carnivorous option).
