90pointsAnimale 2017 Stainless Steel Aged Regent (Puget Sound)

Editors' Choice

This is a rare example of this variety from Washington and a rare Puget Sound appellated wine. It's a blend of fruit from Battista (62%) and Cloud Mountain Farm and aged 14 months in stainless steel. Aromas of sea breeze, light purple fruit, flower and whiffs of barnyard lead to light, bright, puckering, acid-driven flavors with a well-balanced scaffolding of acidity and plentiful tannins providing support. A light smoky note lingers on the finish. It's thoroughly delightful, absolutely requiring food alongside it. Pair it with chargrilled salmon with a lemon beurre blanc. Drink now. Sean P. Sullivan
