91pointsBalboa 2015 Carmenère (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

Editors' Choice

This variety is often noted for its green characteristics but, coming from the warmest vintage that the state has seen, this wine is very much not that. All coming from Summit View Vineyard, it has appealing aromas of black pepper, jam, whiffs of jalapeño and black fruit, followed by rich, full-bodied dark-fruit flavors with plentiful peppery accents. It's a hedonistic delight, a full-throttle interpretation of this variety. Sean P. Sullivan
