Basel Cellars 2003 Claret Red (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

A very dark and sappy blend of Cab, Merlot and Syrah; it shows all three grapes' influence. The Syrah gives it color and spice; the Cab provides tannin and a hint of herb; the Merlot broadens out the midpalate a bit. An interesting, flavorful blend; right now the fruit is young, fresh and right out front, with a finishing lick of citrus. Paul Gregutt
