Basel Cellars 2007 Estate Merriment Red Wine Red (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

This Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc is sourced from the estate's Pheasant Run vineyard. Aromas offer a mature mix of baking spices, dusty cocoa and chocolate-covered cherries. The flavors thin out from there, seeming to drop into a chocolate/tannin echo chamber. Not unpleasant, but lacking the depth and texture that have been there in the past. Paul Gregutt
